    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Besong presents the information in a way that is engaging, fun and makes sense. I took this course with a different professor and dropped it and retook it with Besong and have enjoyed it so much more.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the discussion on how philosophers explain why the things are the way they are. It really makes you rethink what you think you know and believe.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the assigned readings and take notes on your readings. It really helps out whe. It's time for the exams. Also when taking notes in class don't just write what he writes on the board, write everything else he says if you can. Write your notes like you are taking them for someone absent. It helps when reviewing your notes later.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really makes you think, he uses analogies that really draw in young adolescents to pay attention to the conversation we are having during that day or specific class.

    I gained looking at life in a brighter perspective. It makes you smarter in a way by making you think of all your options and getting in depth about certain aspects of life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say just stay on top of your reading and stay engaged in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was more difficult than most beginning courses but Professor Besong was super interesting and very engaging. Not to mention very easy to ask questions to.

    I like the conversations we had in class. They were always interesting and never got heated or controversial.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you do your reading and engage in class you will do fine.
