    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really gives you whirlwind view of human nature itself through the eyes of the prolific texts you've heard about your whole life, but probably never read. This class is basically studying philosophy, religion, art, science, and poetry all in one class in order to understand what it means to be human- and is absolutely a stunning and eye-opening experience.

    Course highlights:

    Having the chance to take a holistic view at the religions of the world through their own individual texts gives you a world view that is priceless in these days and times. Understanding other people is essential to living harmoniously in society and this class truly gives you that opportunity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't leave your essays for the last minute! Also, going in for office hours with the professor to discuss essay drafts is always a huge help.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it as it gives an opportunity for critical and argumentative thinking on a variety of topics that are often controversial. With topics including race, feminism, religion, and philosophy it enriches you in knowledge. The socratic seminar style of class allows interaction with peers who disagree and agree with you and your view which overall broadens your perspective while still offering a respectable learning environment. It is one of the most difficult courses I have taken but by far the most rewarding

    Course highlights:

    The main question asked during this course no matter what text was being read whether it be excerpts from the Bible or watching the film Moonlight was "What does it mean to be human?" that is the entire question of the course. At the end I had a better understanding of the fact that to be human is to be flawed and to be different in almost every way except for sharing the similarity of being human which brings us together and tears us apart in every beautiful, terrible way imaginable. I learned how to effectively argue my opinion while still being open minded. Most importantly I learned that you can be wrong or you can be right but what matters is how you make those around you feel.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It isn't easy and I personally didn't feel like I was intelligent enough to take it at first. But after taking it I would do it over and over again. Be open to the readings and actually do the readings. Please go so the writing tutor before turning in essays. It is a lot of blood sweat and tears that go into it but it's kind of like seeing the world in a class. I feel more connected to humanity and education and I feel like it can do that for anyone if they are open to it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Loebenberg really cares about her students and loves to lighten the mood so everyone is interested in the subject matter. The readings are abundant and sometimes tedious to read at best, but the seminars make it more exciting. Some of her analyses are recycled from other sources, but for the most part Loebenberg offers stances no one may notice at all. The essays are very ambiguous, so what she's asking for may not be clear.

    Course highlights:

    Being in class. It was always fun to attend, even if I didn't read what we were discussing. There is a real friendly atmosphere in the class, and everyone is encouraged to voice their opinions (especially with participation points on the line).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    ASK QUESTIONS. The essay prompts are confusing to understand, so it is best to ask Dr. Loebenberg herself--not the TAs, as even they don't know what she means at times--how to interpret the prompt at hand.
