    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed the class and being able to think outside the box on philosophical questions, but this professor, in particular, was not very open-minded to the students' take on concepts, and it was more of a "his way or the highway" type of learning environment. You really must read all of the assigned books, and have a great memory for detail, because that's what most of the quizzes are based on. The final exam was ridiculously difficult because it was about 15 essay questions, must be half a page or more for each, and the questions would be graded based on your way to express your understanding as well as using specific names and vocabulary within your explanation of your answer.

    Course highlights:

    Interesting philosophical concepts that you may not have ever thought of before. TA's classes are much more open to discussion and more entertaining to bounce ideas and perspectives off of one another.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make friends with those who sit around you and who is in your discussion classes. Study groups or shared study guides are fantastic. Just being able to discuss the reading assignments was important to help jumpstart your memory right before an exam or quiz.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very interesting course, especially for people interested in philosophy.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were reading some philosophers I had already heard of and discussing beliefs in discussion section. I learned a lot of major philosophers and their respective philosophies.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor and TAs require you to do the readings, and I think it's highly recommended. However, the readings are really dense and you might not even understand the material after reading it on your own. Attending lectures is a must.
