    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course begins to show a person what they are capable of in logically thinking and believing. It allows the student to become accustomed to automatically desiring and looking at the other side or all sides of a position or argument. This course is about opening your mind and being willing enough to admit when you are wrong even when you so desperately want to be right. Wonderful, mind opening college course.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight was fallacies and their role in argumentation. Another was what a true logical argument form and structure is. A key skill taken away from this class is thinking critically and logically.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One peice of advise is be open to new thinking and be willing to leave your comfort zone. Another piece of advise is if you haven't really had to think on your feet, learn to, this course is very interactive and fast paced. Thirdly, read the book as well as pay attention during lectures, there are many useful real life examples not written down, but rather verbally spoken.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Orton is very thorough in her lessons and is always willing to put in extra time to help a student if they request it. Plenty of time is always given for assignments and tests and grading is very fair.

    Course highlights:

    The assignment topics were always really fun which kept me interested and never bored or stressed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! I am very glad that I have taken this course and although it may not seem like a course that would be life relevant, it is.
