    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend because it's only a really confusing class but it's a requirement here at Merrimack. The class is about the way people back in the days understood and in their own words it's complicated. Understanding the class and their points is a hard task but it is what it is.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of life lessons regardless though. They viewed life differently and the way they explained things and proved their point actually makes sense. For example, I didn't know there were multiple types of friendships and after that class I realized that most friendships are based on interest. The number of real friends you have can be counted in your hands. It teaches you a lot about life but you got to be open to new ideas and views

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in that class, you can't skip class. I know that somedays you will feel like you don't want to go but missing one class can have a big impact. You'll miss it when exam time comes because you didn't learn it in class and looking at notes is not the same. I would also say take notes and complete the little amount homework he gives. It's not that much and it doesn't take that much effort but it will surely have a great impact on your grade

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course challenges students to consider, question, and delve into various personal inad interpersonal aspects of life. Existence, being, how we see ourselves and live are just some of thew areas of discussion.

    Course highlights:

    I gained insight into myself that I had never even looked at in previous classes. Philosophy is about reasoning and taking in new perspectives. I learned how to open my eyes and mind to new ideas.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Bring an open mind and your questions. It is a different and unique academic experience.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy courses strengthen students’ abilities to think, speak, and write critically, analytically, and creatively. This is what Merrimack tells us philosophy is supposed to teach you. It really did help in all these aspects. It makes you think about things you never thought about before.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to take the course in our dorm with our fellow scholars. We were able to work together with our living learning community. Sr Jean made the class interesting. I wasn't sure what Philosophy was about. The course brings up topics that you think about well after class is done.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading and writing with this course. You must be willing to put in the time necessary to accomplish all the assignments. What was helpful for me was that the students I live with on my floor all took the course together so we could literally discuss anything at anytime, not just during class time.
