    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course. It really reviews the “why” of knowledge

    Course highlights:

    The highlights, for me was learning the history. I enjoyed learning about Plato and Socrates.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded to the idea of learning about something that is abstract with no real answers.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Snow is AMAZING! This was more of a daily discussion than a "class" per say. We learned through each other, and hearing everyone's take on different things was so interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about Philosophy than I would if we had just stared at a textbook all day. We used the writings of the different philosophers to learn about them rather than just looking at what someone else wrote in relation to them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READINGS. If you do them as you go along, they are not as painful. If you do it sporadically, you will not enjoy them or get as much out of them. There was a quiz every week, from what I remember…study for it!!!

    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.
