    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am not huge fan of philosophy, but I loved this class because of the Professor. You read a lot of old famous texts and write reports on them. But it is one of my favorite courses that I took.

    Course highlights:

    The Professor is awesome. I took it solely and would again just because he's so good.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read and write a fair amount. You have to read a passage ( anywhere from 2-7 pages long) twice a week and write a report on it. Go to class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was very interesting and fascinating to see the change in the creative arts throughout each different civilization. The professor is also a great professor.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights were the real world assignments we had. We attended a number of different activities like a ballet, a musical, and a play. I learned that there are more things that I enjoy doing than just my few favorite hobbies. It helped me expand my horizons.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure that you keep with all of the assignments and keep and open mind!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class for several reasons. 1. You will be pushed to improve your reading and critical thinking skills. The course is set up to demand hard work and reward effort with improvement. 2. The material covered will help any student better understand the history of civilization and thus help them to understand why society is the way it is. 3. You will be given all possible tools to excel in this course. It is difficult and challenging but is not set up for students to fail. The teacher sincerely wants you to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me to read difficult text. We read many exerts from philosophers and world renowned thinkers. I learned the process of reading a book that cannot be understood by merely reading. To understand, one must pick apart key terms, identify propositions, determine what the author was trying to portray and know how it has implication in my life. I also learned how to think outside of the box. Each human being has a different background and thus views the world in a different way. This course allowed me to take a step back and see a broader more comprehensive view of the world. Among other things, i learned many historical and philosophical events. Examples would be, the fall of Rome, epic battles, the life of Alexander the Great, Plato's Allegory of the Cave, and many more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read out of your book everyday, even if there is no assignment due. Reading everyday will make your tests easier and improve reading abilities.
