    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're into Philosophy than I'd recommend, but if you have no interest in it than it will most likely be boring to you because there's a lot of little details involved.

    Course highlights:

    I thanked learning where thinking and the thought process came from and how there is almost a reason for everything.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take down notes and everything important detail that is mentioned at.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to Philosophy with Dr, Kinggard is definitely a unique experience to say the least. He gets so enthusiastic about philosophy, and you can tell that he has a passion for what he does. He makes the topics interesting, and he keeps the class discussion flowing nicely, that way the ideas never stop coming! Plus, he actually reads your emails if you send them, and he does his best to work with you if you have an issue.

    Course highlights:

    Though there was lots of reading, a couple of essays, and about seven quizzes, this course was not boring in the least! The reading was actually pretty interesting was you started to understand what these philosophers were trying to say. But overall, the highlight of the entire course of Dr. Kinggard himself. I know that if I took this class was someone else teaching it, I would have lost all hope within the first lesson. But Dr. Kinggard made the whole thing interesting, and in the end, even with all the philosophical ideas and debates, you leave the class knowing one thing for sure: you exist, and nothing else. At least according to Descartes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you do your reading, pay attention in class, watch the videos he gives you, and maybe go over the PowerPoints again at home, you'll do fine. Try to pay close attention to the discussion in class, because it will definitely help on the quizzes later. Also, some students give really good stuff that you could touch on in your essays, so its always recommended you took notes, even if Dr. Kinggard posts his own notes online, be sure to take your own.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really makes you think! It opens your mind to challenge what you know and helps you learn how to validate your arguments. This course is a real eye-opener.

    Course highlights:

    Best part of this course for me was learning about metaphysics and Plato's Allegory of the Cave. I learned to be and active listener and my own philosopher.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this course would be to make sure you read and understand what your reading. Do research until you have a complete understanding. Study tips I would give is flash cards for different philosophers and their contributions to philosophy.
