    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The goal of philosophy is to understand all of the possible answers to a question and find truth within said-question and select the best answer. This can stretch out to almost everything in life, including politics, debates, science, literature, etc. It is an amazing course and it will guarantee a stretched outlook on life with enough time spent.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I personally gained the ability to spot biases in what my knowledge and think on subjects more to eliminate them. Being able to spot these biases and reason something much more logical will not just make you more knowledgeable in the future, but it also gives someone more clarity by exploring different topics to themselves. A good amount of the questions discussed in this class are also very foreign to most all that are just starting philosophy, but they stretch out one's potential by raising the bar of critical thought.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main thing to do is get interested with the topic! If you do not want to learn any of the things presented within the course, then you won't. It is better you switch the class up for something else that you are interested in and plan to invest time in because you believe that it is much worth time spent to understand the subject and its contents.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course to take and I absolutely loved it. However, simply because there isn't a strict attendance policy doesn't mean you aren't obligated to attend the lectures. I've learned the hard way that most of the important material on the final exam was discussed primarily in class and not within the textbooks or online. In the end, I managed to pull my grade up to a B but if I had better attendance I could've pulled in an A easily.

    Course highlights:

    You go over information such as the one-truth theory and certain ideals of a few ancient philosophers. Religion is discussed quite a bit and there's in depth class discussions on why or why not a supreme being exists.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to class and study about once a week for about an hour or so. The course workload is pretty light so you'll have a lot of time to have a social life.
