    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class because it was all over the place. Its very hard to understand because its indirect. You have to really think and solve what the philosophers try to prove and how they made sense. It never made sense to me the more I tried the more I got confused. I'm just glad I only had to take it once.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the famous philosophers like Socrates who was known as the "God" of all philosophers.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If your into philosophers and how they proved things like if there is a God. Its pretty cool to see how people thought in that era. You have to really reread everything and ask your teacher a lot of questions. its not something you will get right away but with help you can get through it. Doing the work yourself wont help asking someone is better.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Who does not like a good challenge in their courses? This course is designed to test your typical moral quandaries when handling and discussing issues of rational thought and the existence of the world as we know it.

    Course highlights:

    Studying Descartes rationalism and how he more or less by the power of his mind was able to deduce that God exists and how the typical person has a concept of self whilebeing wary of trusting the senses alone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the text multiple times to make sure you have a thorough understanding, skimming will do no justice. Take his advice on his comments off your short responses and integrate your experiences and his teachings into your answers. It's okay to be subjective, otherwise if you take an objective approach you will wind up ripping your hair out by being too deep.
