    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is truly eye-opening because it really does shift your paradigms in terms of how you go about solving problems and arguing your position. I learned a plethora of new theories and ideas that have allowed me to genuinely discuss important issues with other people who may have differing positions. Although the religion unit can become quite heated, it was the best unit of the course because it brought to light so many interesting concepts. I absolutely loved this class and the professor is so hilarious and relatable!

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned how to create valid arguments and reduce fallacies when attempting to debate a position or defend my opinion. In addition to the practicality of the research and reflections that we completed in the course, I also gained knowledge on the history of epistemology, religion, etc. These new theories and concepts have assisted me in gaining a deeper appreciation for the values that I have and the life I have been given. Honestly, this course enriched and enlightened me mentally, emotionally, and academically.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you check the professor's website often because he provides plenty of resources to ensure student success. In fact, he posts study guides, flash cards, jeopardy reviews, readings, etc. that have allowed me to succeed on all exams and papers in his class. Also, he is an approachable professor that is easy to conference with and ask questions so you should visit him if you have any concerns.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He's pretty cool once you get past the "first week intimidation" stage. He plays music before classes and constantly jokes around with students while also being professional and while keeping it relevant to whatever you are learning.

    Course highlights:

    I went into this course terrified and walked out a changed person who sees the world in a totally different view. You will hear about the "green" assignment and that was the point where I really started questioning myself. Expect to learn about yourself, how you grew up, and how you need to change in a changing world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't let his gruff, old man personality scare you! He always gushes about his wife (who you will come to know a little too much but will still admire, somehow) and kids and is a gentle giant. Always do the readings, however. He will threaten you with pop quizzes and will also be disappointed. Watch The Matrix.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Sadler is the type of genuine teacher who cares more about the student's education and grades rather than just getting through a lecture. He provokes deep intellectual thought and provides life lessons to apply to life outside of the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    I gained common sense as well as knowledge on how to apply my critical thinking to real world scenarios. My mind was sharpened in the sense of how to view the world and I personally feel that the price for my education was well worth the type of care I received in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just study all material provided when it comes to any exam and make sure to listen attentively during the lectures so that good notes may be taken!
