    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, primarily because it is required for most degree plans. It is fairly easy to memorize the material. The professor is well known for putting people to sleep, but if you can take a monotone voice and sloppy hand-writing, it is an easy A.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the professors dark jokes, which were always unexpected and caught the class of guard. The curriculum of the course covered prominent philosophers, such as Aristotle and Emmanuel Kant. A lot of the material is self-explanatory, but there are a few interesting philosophies that you learn about.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to stay awake in class and take thorough notes, because the answers to the study guide will be found there. You need to do the homework, and there is a lot of it. However, it is just answering short answer questions that are word for word from a reading passage. You go over them in class and a peer grades your paper. If you do the homework and pay attention, you will make an A easily.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very interesting and learning about the concepts along with the theories of ethical reasoning was something I enjoyed. Learning these concepts was very easy for me, but some of my classmates seamed to struggle extensively with understanding the concepts. Due to my classmates struggling, the professor had to repeat a lot and I found myself exasperated with how much repetition of the same concept was happening, but excluding that they class was great. I especially enjoyed learning about the idea of ethics being an unspoken contract of respect from human to human. If you have interest in concepts that are outside your comfort zone and ideas you might highly disagree with, this class is made for you.

    Course highlights:

    I don't know about highlight because I enjoyed the class throughout. I learned many thing, for example: hedonism, desire/preference, and objective list theories and their functions of determining the well being of a person. Along with that we learned about deontology and consequentialism which also have other veriations (conquentialism doesn't have veriations). All of these theories have interesting view points of how ethics should be approached. There is two extremes and a middle ground and it is extensively hard to choose a side when both theories make valid points.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and everything becomes easy. Test, papers, homework, quizzes, and journals will all be a breeze so long as you pay attention and don't miss class.
