    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Gursozlu us very nice. Everyday she made her class room a relaxed environment. She always kept things straight to the point and her lectures are going to be the most helpful thing to pay attention to. She also isnt fussy about not having the reading books in class. As long as you're engaged with the lesson she'll be happy. I emailed her once with some questions and she got back to me with a thorough responce. He class is not difficult at all. Doing the reading will help but are definitely not needed.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course would be her lectures and teaching style. She structured the content very well and took her time with lectures. She often would open the floor for questions or pose interesting questions her self that helped everyone comprehension. She also utilized videos and movies in her class so over all its not much reading. Her break down of the content is very helpful and should be what all the notes you take are focused on.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't waste your money on buying the books. Most of the content could likely be found for free online and she never requires you to bring the books to class. Be engaged in the lessons, ask and answer questions. When you do that she really sees you as a standout student. This course is not alot of reading or writing. The quizzes can be a bit tricky but if you have a good grasp of the content they shouldn't be too hard.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will make you question every single thing you've been taught about "the meaning of life". It's definitely a very interesting way to begin your journey in college.

    Course highlights:

    The professor is definitely the highlight of this course. Prof. Guise-Gerrity is not only brilliant, but she pushes you to think outside the box and question what you stand for. The most crucial information that I've learned from this course was: You don't know anything. What you thought you knew is all a lie. Now that you know you don't know anything, you're forced to find the truth. Good luck!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ! Read every single thing she offers you. Why? Because these readings are the basis of most of our modern sciences. Once you get a hang of these readings, you understand a lot more than you'd ever expect.
