    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Though I have experienced both academic and personal growth because of this course, I am hesitant to recommend it purely because it is not for the faint-hearted or for those wishing to get through college by way of easy classes. The course work is very rigorous, with writings and readings once a week, and the grading quite harsh. However, I believe my growth in writing and philosophical knowledge was worth the extra time and effort, and if you want to push yourself this is the class to take.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the discussion and deep thinking required of me on the ideas of Mandeville, Thucydides and Averroes (these are the authors of the books we read each week and wrote on). I learned about their points of view, as well as my own about such a deep topic as power. Most significantly, this course has helped me improve my writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don’t give up. You may be frustrated at first at the low grades you receive, but if you stick with it and really try to improve, you’re grade will follow. Go to any one-on-one workshops with Dr. Custer that you can as these are extremely helpful.
