    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course, because it really teaches how to see the connections in the concepts. Most of the stuff you learn isn't just learnt in one day, and then forgotten and never used again. Once something is taught to you, you'll find that it is prevelant and almost everything you do.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was learning about Aristotle. As well as, reading the book the Iliad by Homer. You learn so much about the idea of virtue without Greek civilizations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give students considering this course, is to not give up. It may seem difficult in the beginning, but it just takes time to adjust. Also be sure to make sure your work ethic is stellar!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I love CORE! It is a great way to learn how to live in an interdependent world. It really opens your eyes to the world around you as well. I have learned so many things since joining CORE, and I have only been a part of it for a year! My opinions and views on the world have changed immensely since joining this program. I honestly believe that any CORE student has the potential of changing the world by using the knowledge that this program provides. It also improves your writing skills so much! I feel like I have become a stronger and more effective writer since being in this course.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned a lot about the world and the perspectives in the world. I now see a lot of things more clearly and am much more passionate about it. For example, I have become very passionate about the Mozambican woman who are often unable to gain an education on health causing them to gain STD's very easily. Many women have to give up their education to have children and to become a stay at home mother and wife. It is very tragic, and the CORE program has brought to light issues like these. Not only social issues, but environmental issues as well like agricultural issues, climate change, air pollution, water pollution, and more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students that are thinking about partaking in this course should be a hard worker. They are going to need to learn how to manage their time as well. It is very important because often the homework assigned takes at least an hour to get done. I know many athletic students who did sports and were still able to get their homework done and maintain good if not great grades. If you love learning about the world around you this is a perfect program! Even kids who are more interested in math and science will do amazing in this course, not only will they love mathematics and science but they will learn to love writing and learning about world.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this course because it teaches students to be more aware of their standing in the world with the identities they have both inherited and developed.

    Course highlights:

    You're not only being passed down a curriculum and the contents that fill it up, you are being passed down values supported by historical facts and happenings.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class prepared and ready to jump right into the lecture. There is no time to waste, and to ensure that the readings are being completed, and that the material is being recepted, frequent if not daily quizzes are to be expected.
