    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There are two essays and four test that contribute the most my grade. Homework is not at any case a factor since it was not mandatory. The class pays crucial attention to the book so the book is necessary for success. If read the books on time and do the homework practices at least once then you will pass the class without any problem.

    Course highlights:

    Since the courses due dates depended on a average one week span of reading a chapter from the book you are able to pick when you read the book and study the practice problems. I learned from the essays that certain orders of sentences can oppose another sentences while the same sentences can be moved to compliment each other.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be very self discipline. The course gives you a span of a week to pick your study time, but do not take advantage and do everything before test or essay due dates. Notes are valuable as I was able to use them during test. Be sure to ask the professor for help in the essay because that an assignment you do not want to fail when you can ask her to review it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a really interesting course overall, very difficult at times, but really fun. I had never done philosophy before, so this course was my introduction to the subject. Definitely not for everyone, but the teacher is very helpful with her explanations and lectures and the textbook (which she wrote herself, by the way) is also very descriptive and detailed. It was really interesting to learn about the ins and outs of argument-making. If you're interested in philosophy and you either want to learn more or are required to take this course, I would take it with her. She's very helpful and knows her subject well and as long as you understand the book then the course won't be too difficult.

    Course highlights:

    How to see which arguments are valid and which are not. The course does what it says; teaches you the principles of sound reasoning. Very interesting even if you are not a PHI major, I would recommend it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book thoroughly and make sure you ask for help if you need it. If you don't understand the first few lessons you'll have a lot of problems as the term progresses. Make sure you take notes during her lectures and, if necessary, google up extra information to make sure you understand everything‚Äč well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Kelsey is a great teacher, even online! His personality was fun, a little sarcastic, and showed his love and knowledge of Philosophy. I really enjoyed his class.

    Course highlights:

    I believe this course helped me making a better argument. I didn't have any expectations going into the class but I thoroughly enjoyed the material and Professor Kelsey's teaching style.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put in the time for studying, discussions, and homework.
