    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it broadens your perspective and gives you the opportunity to engage in discussions with other students. Professor Poller is a great professor and is open to hearing opinions when they are supported.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the class discussions because it gave me the chance to see how other students interpret the material. Since I took this course online, I thought that it would be difficult for me to keep up with the course work, however, Professor Poller recorded his lectures he had with other classrooms and provided his own notes to the students. I got to learn about philosophical figures and what they stood for, such as Aristotle and his "Golden Rule." I had the chance to listen to what my peers had to say when they were given the scenario of either saving a twelve-year-old or a sixty-year-old and why it was ethical.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to ask questions when you do not understand something. Even if it is a question about a word you have never heard before, Professor Poller encourages it. Reading the material given also helps to understand the lectures and follow along. I encourage students to participate in the class discussions because not only are you given extra credit, but it gives students the chance to hear other opinions and have social interaction.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very invigorating course and make you think outside of the box. The topics can get pretty rough; however, this class covers topics relevant to what goes on in today's society which make it more potent. Professor Poller is a very nice guy who knows, and has experienced so much. He really makes the class.

    Course highlights:

    The fact that we discussed some of the ethical issues that are currently very big in today's society including abortion, feminism, and physicians assisted suicide, is the real highlight of the course. Everything we discuss, even though some of the people and ideas are ancient, is very relevant to what is out on the table in the world today.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I suggest you read the material and take notes in class on the professor's presentations in order to do well on the weekly quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing. It encouraged me to think from multiple points of view. This course also encouraged me to stand up for what I personally feel is right or wrong, rather than just following someone else's judgement. Professor Smith, not only encouraged the students to discuss things but he also joined in the discussions with enthusiasm.

    Course highlights:

    I loved being able to have hearty arguments with the instructor as well as other students in this class. I learned that even though it is not always exceptable to voice your opinion, you as a person will always be entitled to your own opinion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course, I would highly recommend printing your class syllabus and staying ahead of it. By doing this you will have a head start in class when you begin discussing what is wrong and what is right. You must remember that there is actually no wrong nor right that they are just another type of label that humans have created as a guide to life. READ THE BOOK!!!
