    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Furlong is an amazing professor and person, and it is a privilege to take his course. Simply showing up for class and doing the assigned reading and writing will teach you so much, and you really will feel like you're learning.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much and enjoyed participating in discussion. The topics we discussed were so interesting that almost everyone in the class participated regularly. Dr. Furlong didn't try to intimidate us with his expertise or make us feel inadequate to discuss such heavy topics that philosophy carries, and genuinely valued all of our opinions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class and do the reading! The reading truly is enjoyable, and although you could probably get by without doing it for most class discussions, the writing assignments will test your knowledge of it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor promotes class discussion without making you feel pressured or forced into speaking. The class itself is designed around the students, so it's really hard to not be interested in whatever is being taught.

    Course highlights:

    The papers we wrote were really lax when it came to the topic, so it was pretty likely you could always write about something you were interested in. The discussions were really fun, too, because you didn't feel like you were being graded on your opinion or thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to speak up. Annotate the readings. Take casual notes: write down the quotes he says because it helps it stick the concepts in your memory.
