    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course focused on critically thinking skills. The professor made sure each students participated in the sessions. The professor created very interesting discussion topics to ensure the students understood the concept.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was all the different beliefs and ideas within philosophy. I learned that some philosophers believed that the soul was not a part of the body but more-so a part of the consciousness within the person. If the soul was to leave the body it would result in the body being a different person. Another concept that I learned that was interesting was the different deceptions regarding God.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give student considering this course is to make sure you take notes in the class and ask questions. In addition to taking notes and getting a better understanding, you need to complete each homework assignment and put a lot of thought into them. This professor grades tough, so giving short quick answers would definitely result in a failing grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students because it is very intriguing. The content students study is quite demanding and tedious but well worth it. The overall goal of the course is for students to be able to think critically with theory and logic rather than emotion and passion.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the weekly seminars on the topic and the class discussions. The discussions were enlightening to see how everyone addressed their views on the issue.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order for any student to succeed in this course they need to set plenty of time to study. The studying includes reviewing the lecture notes, articles, and questions for the week. Also, there should be a minimum of five hours divided evenly to help study to eliminate being overwhelmed.
