    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, I didn't love the class. There was nothing wrong with the teacher, the subject just isn't exactly my cup of tea. For people who like philosophy, I would recommend the course, but for everyone else, I would say choose something else.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about a few different philosophers (Kant, Aristotle, etc) and their views on ethics. We also had discussions on some of the "hot topics" of today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't forget to do your journals. The journals are the only homework you do besides the final paper, so they're very important.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great class. Very interesting material, makes you really think about the world around you. Professor Isanhart is a fantastic teacher, very knowledgeable about the subject and straightforward in what he expects from students.

    Course highlights:

    Gives a great overview of the main topics in ethical philosophy. Good as an intro class to philosophy studies or just a background in major ethical arguments

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you really need to do is take good notes in class and read the assigned text. There isn't much to read, though it can be difficult because of the way the philosophers write. Go to the SI sessions! Great way to review the material so you don't have to spend so much time studying on your own.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very interesting as well as the professor. it makes you think constantly but it is a lot of memory required. some terms will be confusing because it seems to contradict itself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be a little more open minded, and to really think about things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and take lots of notes, make sure you pay attention and ask questions. do not sit there, there is literally no stupid questions or opinions in this class.
