    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Biss is the sweetest, most intelligent woman you will ever get as a professor. You can tell she genuinely cares about her students and efficiently is capable of making our learning environment lively. I've never been so excited to attend a class before until I attended Dr. Biss's.

    Course highlights:

    We studied Socrate's argument that individuals don't deliberately seek harm, in addition to that, we also analyzed Socrate's cave allegory. What really stuck with me in this course was learning about the progression of love, the seeking or desiring of something and how it begins from the lowest level of reality of beauty to the highest level of reality of beauty which would be the abstract or the objectivity of an entity’s specific quality.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind, and be willing to make yourself vulnerable to learn.

    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.

    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.
