    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was extremely interesting, and if you feel that you are a relatively good writer, your marks will be high, as the majority of your grade is composed of two papers.

    Course highlights:

    Learn about epistemology and metaphysics in this introductory philosophy course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While the class is fairly easy, if you are not confident in your writing ability I would suggest taking an English course first. Great lower-level w-credit!
