    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting and was the perfect introduction to the topic. I got to learn different views and ideas on why things happen in this world. In this specific class, however, it was based just on discussion every day, and there wasn't a lot of lecture that I learn best with.

    Course highlights:

    The topics we focused on in this course were Determinism, Feminism, and Existentialism. There were different films that focused on the certain topics that made it interesting to look at in a different perspective. We did multiple discussion responses and two Essays throughout the quarter.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to save money, the textbook is unnecessary and I didn't need to open it once. Keep a notebook with you at all times and write down questions you have as well as all aspects of the topics, whether you believe in it or not.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It helps you understand your thinking process better. I enjoy how my professor allows answer to be question of the unknown. Great class!

    Course highlights:

    The energy he gives to his students, not once have I seen him sluggish or not present within the conversation.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every piece of work he posts on his canvas page it will help out a lot. I learned that the first quarter.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend that everybody should take a philosophy course to open their minds to certain ways of thinking, and I am so glad I took my first one with Zoe as my instructor. I took the class my first quarter as a junior in high school at my local college; she did a great job of creating an open environment that made me feel respected as a student and welcome to the new school.

    Course highlights:

    The units were: What is Philosophy?!, Epistemology, Dualism, Identity and Metaphysics, Free Will, Religion, Ethics, Feminism, and Existentialism. GREAT intro to philosophy as a whole. I learned about knowledge, I learned to question my surroundings, I learned that there is always more to learn. One of the highlights for me was the feminism unit; a quarter later I took Zoe's course Philosophy of Feminism and it was a wonderful continuation to the intelligent discussions about gender in society that we started in Phil101.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Allow yourself to get into it. When the teacher asks you to think about something, actually think about it! Don't just write an essay on a topic because you were told to; really ponder the significance of the prompt and its application to your life - a good philosophy prompt will always have some sort of relevance. It can be easy to roll your eyes when you've been discussing what a table is for 45 minutes, but look deeper into the conversation and what it means in accordance to other/all aspects of life.
