    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Fischer is very personable and open to helping his students. The course itself is comprehensive and it challenges the understanding of the world. It has the ability to challenge people that don't typically take a thoughtful approach to the world but it still satisfies the urge to question everything that other people have. It would be especially helpful for newer students that are just out of their parents house to aid them in thinking for themselves for one of the first times. It is discussion heavy.

    Course highlights:

    Personally it was enlightening to see the varying perspectives. Coming from someone who is introverted and loathes class participation, it was helpful in pushing me to participate more and speak out more. It also helped to help not jump to conclusions about certain things, or helped me think about as many sides of the problem as someone can think of for the time being.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. Spend a lot of time thinking over as much of the problem as you can. If you get a study sheet go through it and put down as much information as you can. Outline all of the potential essays then pick the one that you feel you can get the most actual content. Taking this course is as much about preparation as it is thoughtfulness and the argument. Listen to others arguments and think about how to apply them to your life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great introduction for Philosophy! Dr. Nale does a really good job of explaining the difficult readings in simple terms, which is incredibly helpful. Also, the tests are all online and collaborative, so, if you do your research, you will get an A.

    Course highlights:

    As this is a 101 course, we covered the basic philosophers such as Plato, Descartes, Locke, Heidegger, etc. Professor Nale did a great job of relating these philosophers' ideas to real life. I learned more about philosophy than I even knew there was to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you do the readings that Dr. Nale assigns. Also, SHOW UP FOR CLASS!! If you miss one class, you will be super behind.
