    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The coursework is interesting, relatable and practical in application in any field requiring language, deductive reasoning, logic, argument or debate. Ms. Harlow is high energy, really funny and entertaining and a wiz in her profession.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite portion of the course was identifying fallacies and faulty logic in every day life and situations. My perspective was forever broadened and I use the critical thinking tools I learned on a daily basis. I recommend this course to every student and all areas of study. How to think is more important than what to think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend the Intro to Philosophy course in order to grasp concepts and origins of thought. In my opinion, Philosophy is coursework unlike any other. The experience is life changing if you do the work which is the reason it is not for everyone. However, I believe the benefits are limitless.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor keeps you at the edge your seat all semester long in a positive way. He explains and simplifies this impacted course where you can actually understand concepts. He also moves at the pace of the class rather than covering everything that no body will understand by the final.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about mythologies which were a lot of the professor's analogies when explaining a concept. Definitely learned a lot about fallacies and how to counteract them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of flash cards as the terminology is a language only philosophers use and is quite a handful. Practice as many examples as you can! More practice the better you get! AND with this particular professor there were no papers!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really like this class because it allows me to think and here others ideas outside of my normal way of thinking. I enjoy a good debate and this class encourages a good debate, not necessarily arguments

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course are the very valid opinions and experiences of other members of the class that differ from my own. There are a variety of readings to use to back up my premise but ultimately this class is based on perception and perspective.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course and enjoy learning how others think about the same subjects you have strong feeling about. You may be introduced to a different way of looking at things or you may just stick by you beliefs and help others to see it differently.
