    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor DeRoulet is an amazing professor, and great at engaging students in their learning. The controversial subjects that are addressed in his classes get you fired up and ready to defend the views you are passionate about, while showing you how to understand the other point of perspective. The best part is learning to become a critically thinking scholar as the only way to advance your views is to come to a new conclusion with the new facts you have learned.

    Course highlights:

    Naturally, when speaking on controversial subjects, there is going to be a difference in opinion and I absolutely love debating my opinions with others who don't share the same view point. I think it is an amazing way to expand your thinking and really understand how other people think, it gives you a glimpse into their mind and that is extraordinarily interesting. I also love writing and if I am given a subject that has some depth to it I will pour my thoughts out as I process them which helps me understand my own thinking a little better. The course is engaging and enlightening and the subjects used to teach critical thinking and the tools needed to become a great writer, student and individual are all provided here by Professor DeRoulet. I learned more about my own hindrances when it comes to critical thinking than I even knew existed within the human mind.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to forget everything you know and thought you believed in and find a new passion, not in a single controversial topic, but a new passion in the quest to find an understanding of yourself and the views you have had in the past, currently are processing and the way your thinking should and will develop.
