    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Its a great way to develop your communication skills. You learn some insight into ways of thinking and understanding your mind may not have have ever wandered without the nudge this course gives. It's a good course to help you understand you understanding of reality and the truths you fill it with.

    Course highlights:

    Small group discussions. Was nice to have a smaller group discussion and hear each persons opinions and see what you share and don't share with them.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I wouldn't give you any advice. You'll do fine. Just show up and participate, that's how you'll get the most out of this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is really makes you think outside the box. It's complex, yet very intriguing. Right now I am learning about Descartes views on reality, the soul, and the mind. It's the most interesting class I have took at Front Range so far.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think deeper and analyze the writing. It taught me how to think about every sentence I read, and not just read it, but really absorb the information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a complex thinker, this class is for you. You will get into religion a lot in this class and other sensitive topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class presented me with a myriad of interesting topics and questions to ponder and discuss with my classmates. Although I'm usually quite reserved and introverted, I found myself enjoying the class discussions simply because of how interesting some of the material was. I feel that everyone should take at least 1 philosophy class, for the experience if nothing else.

    Course highlights:

    While I didn't gain much in the way of practical know-how or anything like that, this class often forced me to consider questions and ideas I had never encountered before, and despite the often controversial nature of the topics we discussed, the class's environment promoted free exchange of opinions, and helped me be more confident when speaking in public.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write the essays, do the readings, and study at least a little for the tests, and you'll be fine.
