    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course and teacher really push and challenge your to think about how you understand the world and society. The teacher is a great instructor and very accepting of responses. This was a fun and relaxing class to be a part of. I would recommend it to a classmate.

    Course highlights:

    TED talks, discussions on what the understanding of words are such as "Lies" and "Truth", challenging concepts such as "God", "Life", "Intelligence" and so forth.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and ask questions. Read the book and be ready to discuss or challenge yourself and even the teacher on things that you have been thinking towards. Do not be afraid to research and if you are not, it is encouraged to research to have a better foothold in the class and material.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is amazing. She explains the course material in a very clear and thourough manner, and makes it very easy for students to follow what she is saying. She also occasionally has us work in groups in order to encourage collaboration and team work, as well as the exchange of ideas.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many of the terms and concepts related to the study of philosophy and how to apply them to my life and that of others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make sure to complete assigned readings before the class, so that you will have a better understanding of what is taking place.
