    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I did not think I would be interested in the material, but the teacher was able to make the material accessible, interesting, and he related it to modern issues. It was a great introductory course, and it gave a broad overview of philosophy ranging from ancient times to modern day. It also covered many of the basics, so I felt like I had an adequate familiarity with them when expanding on their works in future classes.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were learning about feminist and intersectional philosophers of the today, such as the works of bell hooks, because I felt like they provided a very good contrast to the ancient philosophers who, while important, feel outdated and not relevant to many of today's issues. However, learning about people like Plato and Aristotle was not as scary or confusing as they sounded, and I was impressed with how well I was able to keep up. Also, it was very good about making one question their preconceptions of many things, so it taught critical thinking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading so you can have productive class discussions. However, do not be afraid if you do not understand it, because the teacher will be able to work on it with you. The material is not for everybody, but with the right teacher, it can be accessible to anybody. Also, participating will produce a better discussion, and engage you with the material so you will better understand it. Do not be afraid to speak frankly about what you think.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches you life skills and how to be a more understanding and accepting person in society, which I believe are crucial qualities to have today. This class will bring new meaning to your life and will help develop your critical thinking skills and change how you view the world you live in.

    Course highlights:

    I gained more as a person than I did as just a student. I gained qualities of tolerance and compassion and I gained a whole new world view. Not to be cliche, but this course is one that is life changing, and it is an important one to take while you're cultivating your persona in college and in life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and read and read. Aristotle and Plato aren't beach books: they're difficult and complex. These books have multiple layers and it takes time to gain some understanding and insight on your readings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it taught me so much interesting information about how people think and process ideas.

    Course highlights:

    The professor I had was seemingly harsh, but he was a nice man who cared about how we learned. I brushed up on my critical thinking skills in a way I never thought was possible. I learned about the nitty gritty of what makes all people equal and different from animals which I think is the most important thing to learn.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always participate when possible and go to office hours. It is a daunting class at first but the professor will work with you to help you understand the course.
