    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject matter is very interesting and Scriven does a great job of taking these ancient philosophical works and applying them to modern political and social matters.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were the lectures themselves. Scriven is very witty and so knoweldgeable of the subject matter that the two hours goes by very quickly, and not without enjoyment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The multiple choice tests are tricky for many students, so really take your time when studying for the midterms.

    Course Overview:

    Cross is an interesting, sassy, and fun professor who truly cares about your understanding of philosophy. She has a lot of interesting stories about when she was younger and isn't afraid of being completely blunt about topics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of theories regarding politics and ethical thinking. I remember the description of the course, as someone who is far from interested in politics and government, was a big *yawn*. But this explores so many interesting ways of thinking about the world we live in. I liked that we had to continually think of scenarios in which the arguments we learned could be applied; it helped me really understand the role every individual has in the world according to certain Philosophers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I didn't read for the class all the time, but I did right out the essays continuously before the midterms. I also encourage students to go to office hours, she will help!
