    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    We are required to take Philosophy as part of our Freshman Learning Community. Philosophy is not my favorite subject, but the professor's keen interest in the subject matter makes it entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    Many philosophers spent their lives trying to prove the existence of God or themselves. They studied reason. These are all things as young adults we take for granted and I never thought much about prior to taking Philosophy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and be prepared to discuss. The professors want to see that you are interested in the subject matter. No one expects you to be a philosopher.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Since this is a required course I find it a bit taxing. However, for those who love to think, debate and argue this would be perfect.

    Course highlights:

    I actually enjoyed reading Plato and analyzing what Socrates actually believed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and ask a lot of questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Thomas has a firm grasp and understanding of the course work and source material. He is a prime example of excellent academic professorship. He would be well equipped and able to teach a mastery level course. That being said, Mr. Thomas' scholarship, understanding, and instructing methods produces a high number of developed minds and philosophers.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would be the writings studies and discussed. Throughout the course Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, and Rousseau are discussed. Aside from offering guidance and various perspectives, the professor offers enough leeway for students to share their own interpretations and develop their own conclusions. I personally learned not only about thinking and thinkers, but also how to think and become a thinker. It is true philosophy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read. Much of the classroom discussions are constructed around the readings. Be sure to be mindful and attentive. Much of the test material is essay writing. Be ready to abandon conventional ways of formulating ideas and open your mind to endless possibilities in logic and reasoning.
