    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really makes you think a lot more than we're used to. It takes you to a different side of ideas and has them all questioned. It really gives great discussions that you can share outside of the class.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights of this course were definitely the actual lecturing in class and the journals we had to do after class. The professor really helps explain the theories on everything like God, Ethics, and Free Will very well and the journals make you really think about it. I learned things like the majority of our beliefs aren't really our own, they're imposed on us through many things and that philosophers have theories on practically everything.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend taking this course. It really helps to introduce you to philosophy and offers really great discussions. You may be required to think about things more, but it's good for your brain.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was interesting and the professor seemed excited to share his knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was learning about what a stoic is. We had to do a month long activity where we had to do the practices of "being a stoic". It changes your view on other people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    REALLY read the material no matter how confusing it is in the beginning.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! Calarco is an outstanding professor! He is funny and entertaining and he makes the lectures come to life. Many people assume philosophy is boring but trust me, if you need GE credit, take this class! I took it for GE credits and for fun and I have already signed up for my next philosophy class next semester.

    Course highlights:

    We studied the main or most influential philosophers in history and modern day. Philosophical works are hard to read but Calarco talks you through every book and explains it until you understand. He also explains the material in a way that makes sense and he almost translates them into modern day scenarios which make centuries old philosophy make complete sense.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course for sure! It is not just a boring philosophy class, it is extremely interesting and entertaining. It also makes you sound smarter in conversation when you can reference a philosopher.
