    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy makes you really dig deep and get into some heated debates.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are learning the different ideas from philosophers and also getting into the debates with other students. There are no "right/wrong" answers per se, but the engagement is what really makes the class interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you read the assigned pages each week, and really gasp the context, you will be just fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy is a very important subject. It's something that has been studied for thousands of years and can be interpreted many different ways. The course has interesting insight to the past and into current events! Overall it helps you think more critically but less judgmentally.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the ancient philosophers such as Socrates and Plato. The highlights were the group activities and insight on current events from the professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep a notebook and keep up with the readings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course to any current or potential college students looking to fill an elective.

    Course highlights:

    Not only will this course satisfy an elective requirement; it will give you the opportunity to voice your opinion pertaining to a plethora of religious and humanity discussions in which you can gain perspective into others' insight and beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Some students may believe that a Philosophy course is a "no-brainer". Whereas it can be easy for most to pass with a high grade, it's advisable to get the most out of this course by participating in group discussion as much as possible. You will be surprised as to how many students share similar beliefs and ideas.
