    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course deals with so many issues that , as a global society, seriously deliberate and ponder over, and as students, those that we may have asked ourselves time and again. The subject material as well as the brevity of class time made it a perfect introductory course that was packed with a great deal of relevant information that was elucidating, but not to the point of being overwhelming. The only issues I had with the course honestly was the distance of the building from all of the other centrally located ones ( it was on the complete other side of Grounds), and my discussion period was the only class I had on a Friday at 3:00 (the inconvenience there is self-explanatory).

    Course highlights:

    I gained a much more thorough understanding of relevant issues that ethics and science deals with today (what constitutes death, life, personhood, etc), as well as historical background and different philosophical ideas that have grown and developed over time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and go to discussion. The larger lecture is always nice to attend, but it isn't mandatory and most professors and T.A.'s will put their study materials and lecture powerpoint online. However, the discussion IS mandatory and here is where you can ask the T.A. specific questions about concepts, hypotheticals, and subject material that might not be fully discussed in lecture/in the notes.
