    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Greg is an amazing professor with a great amount of love for the subject he teaches. I would recommend him for any of his humanities classes but specifically Philosophy 1000 was an amazing class that got me thinking about determinism and free will as well as the basics of philosophy and the historical figures who brought us the world we know today. You should take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to reason and think! It taught me the value of observing all opinions about a subject and THEN decide what you believe.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy it and study what the professor tells you and you'll be fine.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course! Dr. Jensen teaches in a very engaging way and the curriculum isn't just the study of a bunch of old philosophers and their thoughts, but applied principles. In the first few weeks we went over the fundamentals of applied logic and ethics which you wouldn't typically have in a PHIL 1000 class! It's fantastic, and I love it!

    Course highlights:

    We went over applied logic and ethics, which was really fascinating. We learned how to dissect an argument to determine it's validity and soundness, and about many fallacies. We then used this to look at common philosophical concepts (utilitarianism, cultural ethical relativism, etc) and critique them accordingly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and ask questions! Some of these concepts are hard and if you're not getting them never hesitate to ask!
