    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Seeing as this course is a core requirement you will have to take it regardless of if you like Philosophy or not, but overall it isn't the worst core class you'll have to take. Just stay focused in class and you'll get through it!

    Course highlights:

    Philosophy in general is a really interesting topic so you can definitely learn a lot from the class! The beginning of the semester can be a little dry but once you get into learning about Plato and Socrates you'll find things to be a lot more interesting!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course you need to really pay attention in class and make sure you take good notes! Try not to rely on the powerpoint to heavily because the reading material is just as important if not even more important.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a great course. We read a lot of good books. Even though the course was a bit challenging we learned a lot of things which allowed us to question our mindset and seek to learn more about the interesting topic. The teacher was available to always guide us on the right path and offer advice.

    Course highlights:

    WE learned a lot about socrates and his motives. We studies Oedipus and learned a bit about greek mythology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend reading and doing a bit of research if you are behind on the history of things like greek mythology or socrates and his teachings.
