    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy seemed to be one of the classes everybody loved to hate. However, when I stepped into the classroom and dove into the minds of people like Plato and Hume, I became completely enamored with abstract questions about human existence.

    Course highlights:

    This course actually changed the direction of my career. It inspired me to change my major to something I was more passionate about. I learned that it is okay to be curious and that it is okay to ask questions that may scare you.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind. Do not let the stereotype of this course discourage you. It can be a very eye opening experience.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was really challenging. Not only did it challenge me academically, but it also challenged me intellectually. Students will be challenged to learn philosophical theories, ethical standpoints, and many more interesting topics. It is not just about rogue memorization, you must understand how theories correlate and be able to logically explain how A+B=C. Though challenging, this course is a great one that I recommend because it is interesting. I really enjoyed the ethics portion of this course, though it was a smaller portion than philosophy. I enjoyed learning about different standpoints having to do with morals and ethics-based situations.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights were learning about ethics as stated above. We learned about different ethical approaches to war, and other hot topics. I also really enjoyed getting the Christian perspective because we are a Christian University. It was just really cool to not completely rule God out of everything, as done in most philosophy and ethics classes. God and science can work together, so it was nice to include God in this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them not to be too tied up in the details of the book. Lectures are extremely valuable and you should always go to class and take notes. If you miss class, make sure to ask a friend for notes, as they are that valuable. Tests are pretty fair, but you have to study for them. Study before essays are due, because they require a lot of knowledge to get a good grade on them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy courses challenge the mind and push us to think outside the box, to be open minded about various ideas and understand the human mentality far more. However, it also leads us to the realization that there's a tremendous amount of things that we do not know. This is not limited to this specific course, it applies to any philosophy course.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course I gained understanding of various theories regarding knowledge, existence, ethics, and the mind. I learned about various theories proposing that we, humans, do not truly know a thing, except the fact that we are thinking and that we exist. It challenges a lot of beliefs that one has. That is what makes this class so interesting, all the questions and theories are relevant to everyone's lives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course you need to keep an open mind and do lots and lots of research. Read on various philosophers and theories, and don't be strongly influenced by existing personal beliefs on a topic, once again be open minded.
