    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy 110 is all about learning how to examine issues thoroughly and objectively and how to argue potential solutions and consequences effectively. We had lively class discussions every day where everyone was encouraged to participate and we honed our ability to argue a point effectively by writing four papers over the course of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course, for me, was learning how to clearly state and rationally defend a position on any issue. Our instructor encouraged us to ask questions, to think outside the box, and to not simply accept the status quo without good reason. We were told at the beginning of the class that the study of philosophy not only has inherent value but it also has value in how it helps you to absorb, organize, explain, and defend information from other courses. I have found myself using principles and skills learned in my philosophy class in my nutrition class, my public speaking class, and even my religion class. I have loved the class dicussions that I was a part of in this course and I know that this course has helped me to express my opinion much more effectively, both verbally and in writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student taking this class should always attend class and always participate. The reading has to be done, not faked, or you will get lost quickly. It was very helpful to me to take a rough draft of my papers to the school writing lab. They were able to help me organize my papers, give solid thesis statements, and communicate my ideas in a clear and concise manner.
