    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class! The classes were based on some argumentative papers for different controversial subjects. We discussed these papers in class, as well as some philosophical takes on them. The students formed their own arguments and conclusions about each subject and we discussed these in class, as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned several new perspectives about different topics, such as drugs and animal experimentation. I also learned several different tips to help me successfully form and defend arguments. I feel very prepared for further discussions on these topics, as well as other difficult subjects I might find myself talking to my peers about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to read the material. Some of the argumentative papers were hard to get through, but we go over them again in class, so you do not have to understand them the first time you read through them. Although we talk about them in class, it is best to have an idea about them beforehand so that you do not get lost during the discussion. I would also advise students to ask questions and give their own arguments and conclusions during class. It is much easier to understand the material, and the class is much more fun when you are actively engaged in it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very informational, yet challenging course. It was very discussion based, and participation was a big factor.

    Course highlights:

    Ethics, discussions about morals and controversial issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and attend each lecture. The quizzes are quite challenging.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it taught me the importance of reading thoroughly and comprehending completely even when the piece of writing is extremely complicated. It also taught me to analyze what I was reading and to accurately and respectively convey my opinion to a group of my peers. It taught me that speaking up in a class room can pay off in the long run because of you can vocally express your opinion, it is pretty concrete.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the final exam. It was worth almost half of our entire grade for the class and we had to complete an ignite presentation which is 5 minutes long, 20 slides, each 15 seconds, that automatically transition. It is completely rehearsed and takes a lot of effort, time, and practice. I learned how to manage my time over the course of the semester because this final exam was assigned on the very first day because it couldn't be completed in just a few days.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you really need to do all of the assigned readings. If you don't do the reading for the class then you can't participate in the discussions whatsoever and that's all the class time consists of. The reading is crucial, even though it is a ton of reading. You can't slide by with just reading reviews, because the professor will know and call you out on it.
