    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very engaging course, this professor in particular is excellent when it comes to providing personalized scenarios which relate to the course content. Some of the video accompaniment that you must watch for various modules are a bit date (1987) but the insights provided by the discussions are really timeless.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course I really gained a tremendous amount of insight into the moral and ethical principles which guided not only the founding fathers, but also the building blocks upon which nearly all present day ethical philosophies are based upon. From Locke to Jefferson, this course provided a terrific insight into how these ethical pioneers shaped the way we view natural rights and what constitutes proper behavior. The discussions were well prompted and lent a great deal of added perspective on the subjects we were presented with, Professor Grego in particular did an exemplary job of guiding the discussions in such a way that the students were challenged with views they had not yet considered.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The written material provided in the assigned course book is rather dry, but most of what is covered in the text is also presented in the video accompaniment that you will review for each module and frequently anything you had trouble understanding in the text will be brought up again during discussion, so you always have a chance to gain a better understanding of the course work. I would recommend setting aside a fair amount of time for the writing assignments as they are somewhat lengthy and require a bit of research and thought to put together. Though the discussion forums are by far the most enjoyable area of this course as the topics encourage all of the students to relate the material we covered to real world concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it taught me the importance of having insight into existing and varying world views. It is imperative to approach this course with an open mind. Each individual view and perception of the world is unique and their is much to be learned from one other; especially from those who have walked this earth before us!

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me more about my own values and beliefs. It has given me the tools to make decisions through meditation and critical thought beforehand. It has opened the door to self-discovery and has given me a brighter outlook on my own life and experiences.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As a nontraditional student with a busy family life, it is imperative to set aside time for YOU! The reading is abundant, but really good for the soul. Focus, focus, focus! When in doubt, ask Dr. Bass! He is patient, understanding, and very helpful.
