    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As a class Philosophy is easy enough. Although there are several writing assignments, the content isn't graded very harshly. Dr. Forrester is interested in making sure you grasp the general concepts of various philosophical view points, and that you are able to explain why you take a certain philosophical stance. Class discussions are usually fun and thought provoking, and the tests are fairly easy as well. This is definitely a class to take if you like brain teasers.

    Course highlights:

    I can't say that I can recall learning anything from this class. At least I didn't learn anything practical. Since it counts as a Humanities course, I gained some general education requirements during the summer semester. It's a relatively fun and easy class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think the best advice I can give is to study the definitions. Make sure you clearly understand them, because a good portion of the tests consist of writing your personal opinion of various philosophical views you hold and why, so you want to avoid saying you believe in contradictory view points.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I adored this class. I take pride in my ability to think around some of the harder philosophical ideas, and this class was much more in-depth than I thought it would be. I had a great time reading and learning about different philosophers and how they impacted their world as well as the world we live in today.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge about different philosophers in modern and contemporary settings, and I learned a lot of fun little facts, which I think are the most interesting. For instance, Descartes actually slept in an oven. Not a modern day oven, of course, but a stone room with a constant fire. To name something less weird, Socrates was a skilled mason in his time - an avid sculptor. I just appreciated how interesting this course was, and I would recommend it to anyone willing to learn something memorable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ, READ, READ! Dr. Forrester is great about covering material, but he puts stuff on his tests which are straight from the book - all things you won't catch in class. If you have questions, ask. He is incredibly open minded, and he loves to debate. Don't fear your opinion, value it. He will do the same. But my number one piece of advice is to read and be aware of what's going on in the class. I suggest to never skip a course hour as well. You WILL miss quite a bit.
