    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was brilliantly designed to allow for open dialogue and promoted provocative discussions. Each required reading was inspiringly insightful and also built on the next reading. Professor Morici went out of her way to spend one-on-one time with each student who sought it. She was always willing to provide detailed feedback and guidance.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me how to reflect on my theological and philosophical beliefs succinctly and effectively. I loved learning about relevant issues through the lens of past perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would strongly advise any student to select Professor Morici's course. Although it is possible to do well without doing every single reading, they are fun and engaging. You will want to participate and will learn a ton!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The Problem of God is required of each Georgetown student for a reason. While a course in theology, it does not preach but instead gives students a sampling of diverse religious views.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the diversity of thought and material in this course. It was so important, especially as a freshman, to learn about how other cultures approach daily life and how that informs the way our world works as a community.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind and soak up what you can based on your own curiosities. Ask the questions that actually matter to you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Theresa Sanders truly cares about her students developing both inside and outside the classroom. She pushes you to learn the course material, but most of us never needed to be pushed- the material was often short and always engaging. Additionally, while approaching complex subjects like the existence of God, Professor Sanders always argues on the side of the Theologian you are analyzing, and allows students to fully comprehend and often disagree with arguments. Professor Sanders was ALWAYS prepared for every subject that could arise in discussion, causing her students to care deeply about the subject. She ends the course by asking "So what, after all, is the purpose of this life?" A question that supports the cura personalis spirit of Georgetown and a question I think about every day.

    Course highlights:

    I had come to Georgetown from a small southern school where you believed the Bible literally or you were an atheist. However, this class pushed me deep into the "grey area" as I realized religion and faith will never be a black and white issue. Throughout the class, you analyze arguments for and against God from the best Theologians in history including Aquinas, Paley, Freud, and Tillich. This course will help you think critically about the purpose of your life, arguably one of the best things you can take out of a college course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do ALL of the readings. This class will change your life if you let it. Participate in discussion and don't be afraid to say something that might be considered simple. Rarely in your college career will you get a classroom this welcoming and engaging; don't waste your time in it.
