    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend any ethics course because it truly challenges your mind to understand your own perspective or others with true purpose. Particularly, this instructor was successful at making students feel comfortable starting and participating in class discussions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was being given the flexibility of choosing the side of argumentation. Before taking this course, I had some firm beliefs without any "real" explanation. Sometimes, it was just what I was taught growing up. This was my first semester in college and academics was (and still is) extremely important to me. I wanted to challenge myself in expanding my mind to new possibilities. For all of the writing essays assigned, I always chose to argue for the side that I did not personally agree with. I truly believed that this was the best way to understand the beliefs of others and also to respect it. With this challenge, I was even able to change some of the things I initially believed in. It was an excellent class that tested me to my abilities of having interpersonal and intercultural skills. I think those skills are extremely important in real life experiences because an amicable experience, although highly ideal, is not always the circumstance. One must use characteristics like empathy, communication, and respect to better handle possibly escalated situations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course, you must have an open mind. You must be willing to exert your ideas while respecting others. I would recommend reading and taking notes of the assigned reading before coming to class to actively participate in Socratic-seminar style discussion. Not only is this finishing your homework on time but it also provides for a more effective class time. You are able to share your thoughts and perspectives to other students and they, in turn, are doing their work as well to expand your knowledge. It is also beneficial to invest time in learning the styles of several historic philosophers. This allows you to diligently converse with the instructor in which she can respond to challenge.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The assignments are very simple and the professor is more than willing to help you; however, if you do not enjoy reading, you will not enjoy this course. Reading the book is a must for assignments and papers.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning new material that I had never had experience in before. Ethics and Aristotle's views are interesting to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and make sure you understand what exactly the professor is asking of you. Follow the writing guidelines for philosophy.
