    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was one of my electives in my first semester at college. It was a very interesting course, that helped me learn a lot about philosophy and how and when to question certain beliefs. It helped open my mind a lot. The professor was clearly passionate about the subject which made learning about the topics much more interesting. Some topics were a little more dry but he always managed to keep the class' attention. However, making sure to read all the assigned readings is very necessary to pass this class. He often gives quizzes on them and without reading them thoroughly, the quizzes are very hard to pass. Studying and entering the class every time with an open mind, is the best advice I can give for someone wanting to take this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to question my beliefs and other people's beliefs in a open minded and respectful way. I also learned good study techniques, including making sure to read thoroughly and take good notes. Having a passionate professor was also a major highlight of this course, it was much easier to stay focused. I learned a lot about how philosophical thinkers over time have developed and adapted their theories on everything from religion and whether there is a God, to morals and how to determine what is good and bad, and what the meaning of life is.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As stated in other answers, thoroughly read each reading assigned, and definitely take notes. Participate in each class even if it's only one or two comments as you are graded on participation. Pay attention in class and write down what the professor writes down. His tests are always straight forward as long as you have done the readings.
