    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really liked this course because it forced me to think about ideas and topics I would have never thought of before. Nothing was too hard to understand, and this course really did a great job of reviewing many different facets of philosophy.

    Course highlights:

    I liked Dr. Cox's lectures about racism and sexism in the modern world and how that relates to philosophy. I learned how philosophy isn't just from old, white guys in Ancient Greece.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings. Show up to class because you get free points. If you're falling behind, Dr. Cox will give you the opportunity to do a lot of extra credit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would very much recommend this course. The professor makes a subject that to most people is very boring, turns it into a course that is enjoyable and seems less like a typical philosophy course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was having multiple short essays rather than having a couple long papers due. I learned from these that they are much easier and less stressful to write.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To read the texts a more than once, this allows for writing the paper to go more smoothly because you will not have to go back and reread to find examples that you want to use.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's an honors course so it will be more reading than the average PHL 103. However, in the end it is LESS WORK. You have one term paper at the end of the year, which, if you go to office hours you will get a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Sayeh has a huge passion for philosophy. She is hands down one of my favorite teachers (and this is coming from a pre-med major). You'll grow a passion for philosophy you never would have expected.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go for it. In the end, it will be one of the easier honors courses in your undergraduate studies. It does not take up too much of your time either, which is always a bonus.
