    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very difficult. He says you had a good essay but then you get it back and made a 70 or 80 on it.

    Course highlights:

    He wants you to be creative and participate in class. I guess I learned how to listen better and pay attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write a lot of essays and come to class every day. He is big on participation.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy is a hard enough class, but this professor seems to make it one hundred times harder than it needs to be. Essays are due every week, and you will be graded on every single particular thing: headers, spacing, and of course, content. You will be expected to know loads of information that most people have never even heard of, and if your opinions do not match the professor's, it will affect your grade. Also, if you are a male, you will be picked on and disliked even more. As a mostly A's, some B's student, I got a C in this class. I highly suggest you do not take this course.

    Course highlights:

    While this class was absolutely terrible, I did learn to think extremely outside of the box; that is necessary if you want to pass this class. I also learned that details are sometimes very important; something that you may not think matters too much can get ten or twenty points deducted from your grade

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write your essays as soon as they are assigned, and definitely talk to the professor outside of class. He is a nice guy, but he expects way too much out of his students. Bonding with him can definitely help your grade.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It made me a better writer and better critical thinker.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were definitely the teacher student interaction, very open interaction for diverse thinking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to speak out towards your teacher or fellow classmates. Interaction is key to helping you understand the topics and concepts.
