    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The coursework isn't too heavy. It's mostly writing a paper every few weeks that are about 250 words a pop.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Wodak is an interesting lecturer who keeps the class engaged with the lecture and his decisions for the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READINGS. It's the only way to pass the midterm and final which are the bulk of the grade.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class, but as a caveat, the readings required are very heavy, and I know many students do not really appreciate that just by the simple fact that we are lazy. Also, this class is really geared towards thinking in a different view or perspective, and almost disregarding your own views, for a big part of the course. The lectures make you think about an issue in a different view, which can be good of course, but it fully disregards your view until your assignments such as long essay or short writing tasks. However, most of the time we simply had to analyze someone else's argument, and prove it to be right, despite our own views, which, again, can be good or bad, depending on the issue and how you see it.

    Course highlights:

    It is a great class that helps, especially freshman students, think about controversial issues in a way that was never taught in high school. That said, it is heavy on readings, and a number of them are hard to fully understand without investing an ample amount of time to re-read and analyze understanding of them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings or you will fail the course. There is no exceptions or "bullshitting" your way out of doing them for this course. He has a PhD in philosophy; you can't fool him.
