    3-5 hours

    In order to succeed, you need to do the readings. They will help you comprehend the information and will help you when the professor teaches at a quick pace.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because modern society is built upon the ancient philosophical ideas, with that said I find it to be a good idea to have some exposure to Platos Allegory of the Cave.

    Course highlights:

    In philosophy I learned that the subject is heavy with the moral psychology of what is right or wrong. Also, the class discussions enabled me to be receptive of new ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind when taking this course. Be aware of the fact that ideas may differ from one person to another, and philosophy is the course to really make you question some things about your own life.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Watts was an amazing teacher, and the course materials challenged us as students.

    Course highlights:

    Through taking this course, I learned that our best tutor will always be our classmates, as well as other useful tips for future classes. However, this is just for life in general. Professor Watts truly knew what he was talking about, and taught me many useful things. Additionally, his class was never boring, because he always had some sort of way of engaging the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack, do all the work. I finsihed top of the class with a 97%. Others could have done better, but were intimidated by the papers and discussion board posts we had to do. Seriously, don't slack, and try to get the work done early!!
