    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is engaging towards the students. He allows you to find the answer yourself, and guides you through the essay writing portions of the tests.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that my perception on life, is not the same as others. It made me question my faith in God, and to see that I shouldn't let a book, tell me how to live. In the end, live a good life, and spread positive vibes to everyone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to his office hours before the day of the test

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a really good way to learn a different way of understanding someone's thinking and how to answer questions differently. At the same time getting requirement done. So it's a win-win type of situation.

    Course highlights:

    This course really makes you think differently! You can't write a short answer to​ a question that requires about your opinion of how a philosopher would respond to a certain idea.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep yourself on a reading schedule and make sure you are on track. If you fall behind you will have to give up some of your free time that you planned to catch back up with the reading. And don't take any kind of shortcuts, it won't work because quizzes​ that you take are meant to make sure you are keeping up with the reading. So if you don't read then you will not do well on your quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was an awesome class to take because the material was interesting and the professor presented it in an engaging and understandable way.

    Course highlights:

    The debates. In-class "debates" are the best part of this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material back and forward! It's the most important part to this course, and if you don't come to class prepared, you won't do well.
