    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class truly helped me understand the depth of the problems that are ongoing in today's society. The teacher always gave an unbiased based lecture and allowed us to present our own take on a situation. In complete honesty, I believe that this should be a required course because not only does one learn about both sides to moral and ethical problems in the world now, but also about one's on perspective on those same problems. The course was organized thoroughly and allowed students to gain an in-depth understanding of the history and perspectives in philosophy, as well as present day moral problems.

    Course highlights:

    Because of a well organized teacher and course subjects, I was able to understand the history of perspectives in philosophy and morality, as well as how they differ in cultures. I began to use what I learned in this course in my outside decisions and perspectives. The professor was always sure to be unbiased and allowed for everyone to speak their mind in a respectful way. Because of this, students were able to witness different perspectives within the classroom itself. I enjoyed writing reaction papers to today's moral problems by using my own view and what I learned about philosophers in the past. We were given quizzes about once every two weeks - this was a good way to check in with ourselves before the exam and reaction papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend memorizing different philosophical perspectives that the teacher and book present throughout the course. These perspectives will be on the quizzes, but will also need to be included within reaction papers. I also recommend applying what you learn in class to what you read on the news - it's good practice for class participation and makes you notice what kind of perspective you take.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course because I didn't find it very interesting. This particular professor assigns work, but you don't really have to do it to do well in class. He posts his lectures online and everything you need to know will be went over in class. It is pretty boring in general.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course included the discussion and the overall easy midterms. Chan was also a relatively easy grader, so don't worry much about that. I learned a few more details on opinions of others on controversial topics such as immigration or the war on drugs.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, just show up to class to get between a B and a C. If you want to shoot for that A, do the readings consistently and participate. Write all your notes from the slides and listen to what he says is significant and you'll do just fine.
