    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was my first attempt at handling Philosophical discourse, but the professor's competence made it a lot easier. That course made me realize the potential philosopher i had in me...i am still developing her.

    Course highlights:

    You will be required to read materials from the Nichomachean Ethics Book II, Utilitarianism, Justice, Free markets, etc and you will be expected to write papers on topics chosen by the professor. At the end of the course, i became proficient at making my own arguments with salient points. It also improved my writing skill, because we had to write and submit papers like once in three weeks.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you have to attend lectures regularly. Get the materials, study them and use the office hours to talk to the professor about any difficulty. Dr. Brodrick was very approachable in my own time. Engage in class discussions to develop your own critical thinking ability.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for a busy schedule. The homework load is light, and yet the material is easy to learn. The class is less of a lecture, and more like a discussion; everyone is allowed to share opinions or propose ideas to the philosophy discussed in class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the Prohibition of Drugs chapter. We discussed the pros and cons of both legalizing and prohibiting hard drugs. The discussions got very heated, and everyone enjoyed expressing their own opinions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class. This course is easy if you put in the time. I put in very little time and effort, but I have learned the material. Don't fall into a sleep in rut, and you'll be fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for those who really want to learn something. The professor is always on time, but is still laid back. His teaching style involves PowerPoint presentations over the higher points of the book. A twenty-five question exam is given approximately every two weeks, but the exam covers very little material, so that the student gains a better in depth knowledge to the subject. The notes are simple to understand, and the professor is amazing at connecting the practices discussed in class with real world applications. I would recommend this class to everyone and anyone.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the section that discussed classical conditioning and behavioral attitudes toward reinforcement and punishment. I learned that there are two types of both reinforcement and punishment: positive and negative. I also learned that a conditioned response can be achieved after several instances of the unconditioned stimulus and the unconditioned response after a conditioned stimulus has been added to the experiment.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    pay attention in class and ask questions if you do not understand; I guarantee success.
