    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wagner is amazing! I knew nothing about philosophy coming into this class and he helped me and answered so many of my questions and he made sure I understood each lesson.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think differently about everything. Before this class I was such a black and white thinker, but now I am so open to every kind of answer and possibility.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course! Go out of your comfort zone and learn new things. This class will help you see things differently and take new perspectives on life.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Joe is a fantastic professor who is incredibly attentive and passionate about his work. He's got great office hours and will work with you about anything, even if it's about another class! There's not a lot of homework either, so it's an overall pretty easygoing course.

    Course highlights:

    His paradox lectures were outstanding. He teaches you the most perplexing paradoxes in the field of Philosophy and he takes a lot of pride in his ability to make students both confused and inspired by walking them through it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class, come to class, come to class! That's where all the learning happens because he only assigns two essays and a final and no homework in between.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course. The topics were very relatable and Professor Wagner did a great job of teaching the material in a non-boring way and unbiased way. He uses a variety of sources/readings to teach you about the main arguments for the topic you are discussing. Class is usually spent going deeper into conversation about the reading and/or helping you understand the homework that was due.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the unit on determinism and free choice the most, although the other two units (philosophy of religion and moral philosophy) were also interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You NEED to do the homework to understand what is happening in class. The homework typically consisted of a reading and a few study questions. Although there was homework for every class, it was actually very helpful and in no way busy work. If you didn't understand something Prof. Wagner would go over it in class.
