    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is definitely a challenge. I highly recommend purchasing the book. It is critical to your success in the class. The reading is very time consuming, and uses a lot of strong vocabulary.

    Course highlights:

    The writing for this class is definitely different from your typical rhetoric in an english class. Therefore, upon registering for this class, come in with an open mind, ready to learn a new way of critically thinking and writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours, its very helpful. Stay up with all the work. Don;t fall behind

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course has taught me more about philosophies I wouldn't recommend this course because the amount of writing is unnecessary for an intro philosophy course. There are 3 short papers at the beginning, 2 5-7 page papers, and a final paper that is 7-10 pages. The papers aren't necessarily to difficult if you've been going to lecture and reading but the length seems extremely unfair.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned about the many philosophies that have have examined ethics and I think that is the definitely the highlight of this course. If you are interested in ethics, the lectures will not bore you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your papers early because they can be tough to write, especially when you get to the longer ones where you have to use more than one philosopher.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a really interesting course with a lot of room to express your opinion during personal, in-class discussions. The professor was open to hearing opinions that deviated from what was taught in class and it made it a much more fulfilling experience than simply repeating what was taught.

    Course highlights:

    It was a philosophy course on ethics, so we debated various ethical and moral systems (Utilitarianism, Kantianism, etc) and the authors they originated from. We also discussed concepts such as abortion, euthanasia, and the consumption of meat.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important thing is to do the readings (or at the least come into each class knowing what the reading is about and the general views of the author). They take very little time but it helps a lot to not have to play catch-up the day before the exam.
