    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I really did not like philosophy, I struggled quite a bit during this summer course. Many of the philosophers we studied shared very similar theories but differentiated on a couple parts. I had a rather difficult time trying to remember the different theories.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of my philosophy course was when it was over. I was beyond excited once I finally finished that difficult class. The only thing I remember from philosophy is that someone cannot step into the same river twice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took this class online. I highly recommend taking this class in person because you will be able to discuss with your professor as well as the other classmates whenever you have questions.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class changed many of the beliefs I held, not only in secular terms but also in religious ways.

    Course highlights:

    I read about a variety of philosophers, such as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, who had very interesting and varying ideas. The highlight of the course consisted of learning about each of these philosopher's Metaphysics, Epistemology, and Ethical values. I came to agree with many of these philosophers, and I also found myself constantly questioning the meaning of existence, and the importance of knowledge and learning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would certainly recommend students to read the textbook very carefully, this class is not easy and it does require students to put a lot of thought into it. The professor gives study sheets; although they are not graded, it is in the best interest of students to do them.

    This class was tough.

    Course highlights:

    There is more to life than what meets the eye. Keep an open mind... Because there are seven billion people living on this planet, with seven billion different perspectives of the world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes during lecture. Research each philosopher and know their beliefs. Create flash cards for different philosophical theories. Open class debate is mandatory. have an open mind to new ideas.
