    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is so interesting, and even if you have no interest in philosophy you will love the material. It really focuses on your critical analysis of the views of the philosophers, so be prepared to argue for or against ideas.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions held by the GSIs were my favorite part. We were able to apply the views to different scenarios that helped us better understand the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip the readings, or you won't understand what the lectures are about. Go to section every week, it really made the difference in my understanding.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Grosser is knowledgeable and excellent as a lecturer. His lectures and reading assignments are well aligned. The content of his lectures are really thorough and touches on all the material covered in the readings. He gives reasonable grades and a really straightforward final exam. I highly recommend this course because students can really rely on the lecture material and a moderate amount of reading to understand the curriculum and pass the class.

    Course highlights:

    As the title suggests, this course is a philosophical approach to individual morality and social justice. The course will closely examine the moral theories of multiple philosophies. But the highlight of the course is that students are allowed to interact in discussions and express approval or criticism towards the moral theories. Although philosophy can get quite abstract, the Professor Grosser connects course materials to social issues. This helps students develop a sense of right and wrong and become conscious if their role towards social injustices in their community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a huge advantage to read the materials that are assigned. Everything will be on the exam and the reading will help students develop better essay responses in the course. If the amount of reading seems overwhelming, do not skim through all of them just to get it done. It is better to read and annotate to fully understand the reading at your pace even if you don't finish all of it. Second, go to office hours to ask about confusing concepts and get feedback from essays. This boosts professor-student relationship and participation points. Finally, it is extremely important to listen during lectures and take notes. Professor Grosser covers everything on the exam in his lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Recommended because it's a fun course to take and has an easy final, not recommended during summer for the amount of essay and challenging topics that has to be done in 8 weeks.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions that apply in class material and the interesting perspectives of different philosophers in one type of issue.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be in class! Assigned readings are not as important as studying the material given during lecture.
