    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was fascinating, and opened me up to thinking about new concepts that I have never heard of before.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about different arguments for the existence of God, and how some were flawed and how those flaws might possibly be answered. We also learned about logic, and about fallacies, which is helpful in debates both in the classroom and out.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind and pay attention even when another student is talking, because they may present points that you never would have thought of otherwise.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it equips students on skills of thinking. It also pushes them to question those things that they think they know and ask themselves why they think in that particular way.

    Course highlights:

    This class taught me how to construct an argument and how to be able to defend those beliefs that I have with evidence and logical thinking. I also learned how to research and construct a well written research/argument paper.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enter the class with an open mind. In the beginning it will feel like a lot of work and sometimes you will feel like you won't be able to get through it all. Stay strong and don't be afraid to be confused and surprised about the things you learn. Whether you agree or disagree with those statements being talked about in class, look at the way in which it is being presented and take note to the techniques being used to argue for or against. This class can teach you a lot if you let it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    When I first heard of philosophy, I imagined a bunch of old men in togas contemplating the world. This intro to philosophy class was so much more than that. Dr. Santana got us on the path of being able to research information, think for ourselves, argue well, and use logic as proofs. Everyone should take a philosophy class at some point in their life because without philosophy, we are trapped in a dark cave of ignorance.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the Allegory of the Cave, Socrates' death, arguments for and against God's existence, different religions, arguments, logic, and most importantly, how to research and make decisions about what I believe without blindly following other people.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take this course. Even if you don't think philosophy will be interesting; it is. Make sure to do the readings. The tools to start philosophy are given to you, but its up to you to use them outside of the class if you want to get better or continue to learn about philosophy. Pay attention; this information is really useful.
