    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    It is a very intriguing class, it makes you think about the world and life in ways never before

    The highlight of this course was when I was finally able to earn a B+ on one of the essay's because this particular professor was a extremely tough grader

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class for anyone to take no matter the major. This class is 4 credits and counts towards a writing requirement which everyone needs to graduate. With the availability of information just from the powerpoints and the help from a TA, this class is easy but not too easy. It is also a great way to learn how to write in an argumentative manner much more effectively.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write better argumentative papers in this class, as well as a lot of information on the history of philosophy which concerns virtually every other major one can take.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is best to skim the reading and the powerpoints before each class because there are clicker quizzes which are graded in each class. Also use your time wisely when writing an essay; such as taking the drafts seriously so you can be the most prepared for the final draft.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very interesting and this course can teach you a lot if you pay attention. It is also a very straightforward course, as everything is clearly organized and laid out in the syllabus. It will make you think, and may shake your former notions of religion, life and death, free will and other fascinating topics in philosophy.

    Course highlights:

    This course goes over many of the basic ideas in philosophy and a broad number of topics are covered. If you don't like a topic, the course will move on from it, but if you do like it, then you can choose to do your assignments on it. Reasonable thought is a key part of this course, as well as learning how to examine and understand theories rather than merely forming theories without support for your claim.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This isn't a course that is just about following the rules. Yes, doing so may get you a good grade, but you have the option of learning much more than is on the syllabus. T
