    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it's a class where you sit and listen. Very rarely do we just sit and listen to what a professor has to say, it may be outrageous, weird, funny, ridiculous, whatever but the point is the professor gets your mind jogging somehow. Even if you're not paying attention completely you catch just little fragments of things that make you think.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight was the huge packages the professor gave us (keep them!!!). Full of information that he just wants to share. If you actually take the time to read them you can see that what he's talking about is interesting. One thing I can say I learned is that reading as a general rule is important, even if its about topics you don't particularly care for.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the packets. Go to class everyday. Put your phone down and listen.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class allowed the students to examine the truths they believed about the world around them, and confront their own misconceptions concerning them. It was an amazing mix of free discussion and learning about classical philosophers and the ideas they brought to the table.

    Course highlights:

    This course gave me the tools to examine my preconceived notions about particular areas of thought and knowledge, and formulate an educated opinion instead of simply believing what you read.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you show up to class and participate, even if you are uncomfortable in doing so. By the end of the semester, you will look forward to the times you get to spend discussing at length the ridiculousness that is religion.
