    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course who students who are not devoted to school work. This class is pretty hard if you do not study for it. You must attend class and DO ALL THE READINGS assigned. Very nice professor however he is a tough grader. Take notes and do the readings and you'll be fine.

    Course highlights:

    The professor is very enthusastic. I learned alot of things I did not know about religions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes. Ask questions after class. Do the readings and study for pop quizzes before class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it offers a semesters worth of deep thought. I learned more in this class about things I had no idea about than I have in any class ever.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included the professor; Dr. York. He was a very funny, charismatic being that got the class to participate and really challenged us to think. The readings were also a highlight of the course. I usually am not a fan of readings but the books that Dr. York assigned were so intriguing that I could not put them down even after I had turned in the assignment.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students taking this course to walk in to the class every session with an open mind. This class requires you to think outside of what you may or may not have been taught for most of your life. I suggest students follow the readings and participate in class discussions (ASK QUESTIONS) as these actions helped me understand material a lot better.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is open to learning about other cultures because it really allows students to get to know more about new beliefs and lifestyles.

    Course highlights:

    Though we are only halfway through the semester, we have already covered Hinduism and Buddhism and their beliefs. We have also uncovered a few flaws in well known religions such as Christianity that would be nearly impossible to notice at first glances.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, the biggest advice that can be given is to take notes on almost anything the professor says. Philosophy classes are full of ideas so the tests will often contain beliefs and ideas that the professor repeats several times during lectures.
