This class was tough.
If you are not fond of reading this course is not for you. Lots and lots of material to be read but the information is wonderful. It is a difficult course that does require critical thinking skills for every assignment.
The highlight of this course has got to be for me, the way in which the readings challenge you to think about your relationship with God and your relationship with the world and what it has to offer. One of the sections talk about idol ism of material things and how it deters your relationship with God as well as how people make the mistake of putting their countries before God when God should come before everything else.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
I would recommend allotting at least 1 to 1.5 hours a day to reading as well as picking out and writing important points made as well as vocabulary. Also, good time management is a necessity for this course very easy to fall behind so staying on top of everything and following Sister Caron's reading guidelines is a must. Having your books at the start of the course is also very important because she does not wait to start the assignments and the library only has one or two copies if they are not on reserve.
