    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I think this course is honestly one of my favorites. It offers a new perspective about life and conventional thinking. It spurred critical thinking as well as active class discussions. The teacher makes the class a welcoming, fun environment. He lays out the subject material in a linear fashion that is easy to follow.

    Course highlights:

    The most notable aspects of this class was the mature nature of it. We never sugar-coated anything and we talked about things as they were, but also explored different perspectives to always assume there was a different side to every story.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend class and take plenty of notes. The class is pretty straight forward, anything he talks about in the class will be on the periodic exam he administers. The work load is very minimal and the only thing that you need to worry about is studying prior to the exams and paying attention in class.

    Course Overview:

    He's an amazing instructor! He treats you like an adult while also setting reasonable standards for what is expected to get a good grade in the class. Also, he encourages open discussion which is really helpful for exams.

    I learned a lot about the basics. The best part were the discussions because there's so many ways you can go with the topic and he encouraged all of them.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really need to show up to class and take notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Looking at the philosophies of history's greatest minds helped open my mind to a different way of thinking. Having an open mind has helped me in countless social situations where rather than getting frustrated with someone, I now try to think of their point of view.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I learned that even the greatest minds are not always correct. This encouraged me to question the world that I live in. The professor encouraged me to speak my mind and voice my opinion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate in class! This course is all about thinking. The more ideas that you hear the more you think. When it comes to studying, create a study group and study the quizzes.
