    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Janowski is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is knowledgeable on a vast number of topics and was always able to explain any subject with clarity. Not only did he teach us philosophy, he taught us history, literature, and art. He made us read, think critically, and write essays. His class was a life changer for me. The knowledge I obtained from his class will continue to prove valuable for the rest of my life.

    Course highlights:

    Not only will you learn philosophy, you'll understand it. Professor Janowski offers and encourages engaging debates with himself and with other students. He will expose you to literature you would not have read in any other class and give you a whole new appreciation of the value of literature. He will teach you how to read deeply and analyze a text, which will prove a very valuable skill in all the rest of your classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read and write a lot. He's a tough, but fair grader. He's will give you limitations on word count, which will force you to write your papers in a clear, concise manner. He will give you the chance to re-write it and give you guidance if the paper does not meet his criteria. He will make you work for a good grade, but you will walk out of his class a much stronger writer than when you started. You will find yourself thinking in different and deeper ways by the discussions. He doesn't just regurgitate from a textbook. The lessons you learn in his class will stay with you always.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it helps challenge students to think more clearly about what is happening around them. It gives them better advantages of making arguments and claims in ways they haven't used them before. It helps gives a better perspective about who they are as individuals.

    Course highlights:

    I Learned How To Use My time wisely when reviewing notes because sometimes, the language used in texts makes it hard for readers sometimes to comprehend better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to future students is to always ask the teacher if you do not understand the lesson that is being taught. I also advice them to use resources like writing centers to make sure your essays follow the prompt of the assignment.
