    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because not only is the professor knowledgeable in the subject matter, but he has a passion for philosophy which shines through during his lectures. He is able to take confusing subject matter, such as relativism and moral objectivity, and make them applicable to the daily life of a college student. Not only do I personally feel confident in my ability to process and understand difficult philosophical terms, but I also feel as though my ability to teach such concepts has improved greatly since taking this course. It is difficult, but it is worth every struggle.

    Course highlights:

    In taking moral philosophy, I gained an appreciation for social justice and was better equipped to comment on the current state of affairs in America. This course was not what I originally expected, as you do not have to be religious, nor pursuing a philosophy major to benefit. The professor is accepting of many differing cultural and political backgrounds, and does not waste class time with frivolous discussions concerning liberalism or conservatism in contemporary American society. Throughout this course, we (the students) discovered that the concept of objective moral truth is not only relevant to today's times, but is pivotal for those who wish to live a good life. This idea of being able to make a good life for oneself was the backbone of the course, and discussions typically centered around achieving this ideal. Furthermore, the reading assignments were informative and captivating, making them easy to complete each week. Overall, this course will not only expand your understanding of moral philosophy, but will help you to become more in tune with the issues the world faces today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course, I strongly suggest you take good notes and go over them repeatedly. He will reiterate what you need to know for the exams numerous times, so there will be no excuse for you to not know the material. Also, when you are perusing the readings, make sure you highlight and take notes in the margins to make it easier to follow future class discussions. The biggest piece of advice I could provide however, is DO NOT underestimate the midterm and final exam. They will both require extensive writing and a complete and thorough understanding of class material. That being said, make sure you put numerous hours into studying and memorizing both the reading assignments and the philosophical concepts. However, if you are willing to work hard and you actively participate in class discussions, the professor will be more than willing to assist you if you are having difficulties.
