This class was tough.
First of all, the professor is the best. He'll feed you so much information in the classes that every time you walk out of a lecture, you'll feel wiser. Secondly, you get acquainted with a handful of philosophers who you should come across at least once in your life. Third, the readings are based on major historical concepts, event and debates from both past and present, so obviously your knowledge of what's happening around you in the world intensifies and you reflect on the inferences and solutions.
I chose an extra major based on my experience with this course! I took it merely for a Gen Ed and know I am a PPL major. I honestly believe this is the best thing that has happened to me in college so far. I learned about the basic schools of Millian and Kantian logic, the debate over rules of fairness between Rawls and Nozick, arguments from both pro-life and pro-choice camps, and most importantly, effective SCOTUS decisions. In a nutshell, it changed the whole course of my life.

Advice for students:
Just do it. If you have enough patience to go through long texts and assess the essence of it, then definitely take this course. You might not get that good of a grade, but you'll learn a lot of things in a well-structured manner.
