    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gets rid of most of the thought processing that shouldn't have been taught to you in the first place.

    Course highlights:

    The final paper, definitely the most difficult but it was so special because it included everything in the course from the beginning. With so much content connecting it can go either way but light bulbs will go off and you will learn along the way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering this course brace yourself its not a walk in the park, and you should not be looking for that type of experience either. This is a real college course.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'm currently a freshman in college , I was behind with my admission deposit , college visit and everything else . However, with that said , when I went to my first official orientation they already made my schedule and since I was going to be living on campus I didn't have a problem with the classes or the time that they were scheduled for . Since I was a freshman I had to take Philosophy 100 , throughout my several classes I realized that this was a very tedious and confusing course . The course work was completely confusing and the professor didn't do it much justice . I realized that this course was definitely a nerve racking experience when I realized that the entire class failed the mid-term which was our first ever grade for the entire semester. We had no classwork or make-up assignments it was just a mid-term and a final . A couple days before the final I realized that in comparison to the mid-term I'm about to fail the final just the same no difference , so I took the initiative and whet to the professor to request that he at least a paper that could help make-up the grade and he agreed that the entire class should write a 5 page essay on the Cosmological argument for the existence of God . If you are about to take this course please be prepared and attentive for every class or else you will end up in my situation .

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for myself personal , were the several arguments for the existence of God . In philosophy it challenges you to question your believes and provide evidence as to why your analysis of what you believe to be the only answer to your opinion , and show you other ways you can either be wrong or right . In this course the topic that stood out the most for me was the "Cosmological Argument for the existence of God " . The cosmological argument proves that God is the creator of all things . This arguments tries to prove that all things that happened had to have a beginning , had to have cause. This argument also shows you that When you compare the universe you realize that it had a beginning; therefore, the universe had a cause. The cause for the universe would definitely not be humans but a higher power.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The encounter I had with this course wasn't a enjoyable experience . However this doesn't mean that this would be the same encounter for every student who's going to or even considering this course . The best advice I could from my personal experience is to do extra reading on all topics that are in the syllabus . Read all the reading assignment , because I fell short in this area because when I realized I was failing this course I thought it didn't make sense to read any of the assigned readings . If tutors are available at your school's academic success center take the time out to use all your possible resources and last but not least go to the office hours to gain insight on topics that you're confused on .

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like movies, and don't mind writing essays based off of the films and readings, not a bad class.

    Course highlights:

    Good class discussions relating to philosophical topics, in the required book. Many movies with controversial decisions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Focus on the essays, they are a large part of the grade.
