    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was a very discussion-oriented introduction to linguistics and morality. I knew very little about philosophy in general, but the conversations in class allowed students, including myself, to develop their own standing on the philosophies at hand.

    Course highlights:

    This course demanded more writing than most other GESMs (required seminar classes for Freshmen), but the content was interesting and the course was overall engaging. If discussions on universal grammar and human interaction strike your interest, take this class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself time for the readings and summaries, they add up in points. Also do not be afraid to speak up or disagree! The opinions of the class are what really make the class interesting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it allows you to explore different views on beauty and how they may still be present in contemporary media today. It also allows you to read advanced text that requires you to have an advanced thought process and interpretation.

    Course highlights:

    I loved watching movies relating to beauty and the philosopher's point of view. I learned that beauty, in the mind of the philosopher, cannot be experienced in the physical world completely by ordinary individuals. It requires a process to encounter true beauty.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you ask questions if you do not understand the readings. Plato can be kind of dense, but if you ask for help it makes it easier to read and write analytic essays.
