    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Awesome teacher. Does get off subject on occasion but topics are still interesting. Not easy by any means- extremely challenging, especially for an intro class which is a required course. However, I was hooked, both on philosophy and her style. I am going to take ethics this semester if her class is open.

    Course highlights:

    Demanding but interesting. I am a non-graditional student and have expressed my concerns about being able to keep up. If you do your homework and interact in class you will get a passing grade.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Hardest professor I've taken at OCC. Lectures were interesting, but the papers were unclear, and she didn't do a great job of explaining the requirements until after the first paper (of 3, mind you). Pretty frustrating class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Amazing class, amazing professor. Took all of Ruths classes that he taught. He is my favorite professor at OCC. This class is interesting and pretty easy.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about ancient philosophers, and their stories. Talk about many theories in the class. You cover a lot of philosophers in a semester.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need an elective class, take this course. Its fun and informative. Many of the theories learned about can affect and impact the way you think.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course changed my entire outlook on life in general. Being able to look at everything you have ever learned and known in your life, but to see it in a different way and analyze it more was life altering. I became very interested in philosophy and ethics from taking this course, and I could not thank Professor Ruth more.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course allowed me to see everything differently, and view things I have never even thought of thinking deeper on. I learned that you can look at events in life in various lights, and each one will put you in a different circumstance. Morals and ethics are big in a philosophy course and I feel that I have gained a lot of knowledge on those two things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Paying attention during lecture is the key, taking a variety of notes from lecture and the book helps out quite a bit too. Through keeping up with readings prior to class will help you in the long run once you get to class and are asked any questions. Reading also will give you much more information than just the lectures. I recommend working with others in the class too because things can get confusing. Also, do not forget to ask questions.
