    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are looking for a passionate teacher to teach you philosophy, take Dr. Sven. He is always happy to be in class and truly wants everyone to grasp the material. Although you will be reading hard works from Plato and Sarte and so on... Dr. Sven makes it engaging!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights from this course are being able to understand Plato, Sarte, and Hindu philosophy. I would never have thought I could explain to you philosophy; however, now I can. If you do your assignments and pay attention in class, you will learn just as much.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to take this class, you should go to every session. Also, he provides a packet with notes. Study everything on it to earn an A on the midterm! There is a lot of material covered but he provides you with the resources to succeed. Another thing, go to office hours before turning in papers to make sure you're on the right track.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helped me expand my perspective on life. I spend more time soaking in what was said ,that way my response is more complete and efficient.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to think more critically before giving my opinion on topics. I also learned more about the significance of famous philosophers such as Plato, Descartes, and Alcibiades. This course taught me that the meaning of life is subjective .

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advice students to attend office hours and ask a lot of questions. I also advice students to message the instructor when getting stuck on assignments outside of class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very well put together and engaging. It's one of the courses that requires a lot of you as a student but really broadens your horizons. Even a year later, I still reference concepts that we went over in that class because it is so applicable to nearly every field and every aspect of life. Truly enjoyed myself.

    Course highlights:

    We went over the well known philosophers like Plato, Socrates, Descantes, etc. I feel that Descantes and his meditations were probably the most difficult concepts we went over but also the most interesting once they were fully understood. I took the class that also focused on Film with Prof. Iyer and my favorite part of the course was watching films and then reflecting as a class about how the philosophical concepts we went over in the course were being expressed through this forum.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read! I would even recommend re-reading the texts and looking up other's interpretations online. It always helped me to engage in the conversation more fully when I was very prepared for class. You get out what you put in to this course.
