    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. I took this course at first as a way to start my first three units in my humanities, but I quickly learned that there is so much to discover about philosophers and their way that they view the world. You also end up learning about different dialogues, or stories, by Plato about Socrates which I personally believe is the most exciting part of the entire course.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight of the entire class is reading one specific dialogue by Plato called the "Allegory of the Cave". It is a story Plato speaks of that expresses the biased opinion on how humanity sees realities. This tops all other aspects of the course simply because it is a life lesson that is able to be used as a thinking tool potentially for the rest of you life; something that many classes won't be able to give you.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to suceed, you absolutely must read the textbook that is required. I know that many classes say "you need the textbook" and they never crack open the front cover. But in this course, the book is not only used for essays during the semester, but it is also used for classroom lectures.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is quite interesting. It really makes you think and its so simple the only reason why it seems difficult is because the student makes it. Usually students over think the question to get an answer but the answers are so plain and simple.

    Course highlights:

    i learned about negative and positive connotation. I also learned how to tell when two statements both agree or disagree in fact and attitude.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    you need to attend class every day and need to study for all the quizzes and test. They're pretty easy when you study.
