    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helps students think critically, broadly, and logically. It also encouraged students to examine a topic from multiple perspectives.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to construct a sound argument, the basic principles of philosophy, and the basics of ethical studies. A prominent highlight was applying different philosophical perspectives to various scenarios and comparing them.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open to new ways of thinking and be open minded. Reading is very important to understanding the material, so be sure to complete the readings and go over them multiple times if needed. Essays are also important so be sure to utilize the professor's suggestions and get feedback from someone well versed in essay writing.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class to any student as San Jacinto Community College. This class taught me a lot about philosophy and the professor was incredibly nice, funny, and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, we learned about famous philosophers, theories, religions, arguments, logical fallacies, and ethics. The highlights of the class for me was learning about transhumanism, how it works, and the ethical arguments surrounding it. Also, I liked presenting on topics in the class at the end of the semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the lectures, take notes, and do not procrastinate. If you do this, than you will certainly not fail and most likely pass with flying colors.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because who doesn't want to seek into human behavior and ask pivotal questions such as the meaning of life? What is the good life? We as humans must disband ignorance and let knowledge, however harsh and true, to rule. As Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living!"

    Course highlights:

    So far we have learned about Plato's theory of forms and the fascinating allegory of the cave. We have read through Plato's groundbreaking book the Republic, which focuses on an ideal society ruled by philosopher-kings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students to give philosophy a chance. Too many people will pass through life without asking the important questions of life and letting ignorance rule.
