Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course provides students with the opportunity to think critically and share their opinions of common religious philosophy with each other in a contained, immersive environment. The professor, Martin Kavka, always kept the class interesting with his endearing humor and intellectually invigorating lessons. This is class is a must-take at Florida State University, as it not only gives students the chance to broaden their knowledge in the religious and philosophical aspect, but also to grow as an individual because of it.
The class discussions are what I would consider the focal point of the class--it is the part of the class where the students really get to come together and build on one topic that we all familiarized ourselves with through the assigned reading. During the discussions, one may choose to sit out and listen to other students in the class discuss--unless called on by Kavka--or directly join the discussion, which is recommended so that one can truly grasp the full experience of the class. I learned a great deal from the assigned reading, but I also learned to better comprehend others' ways of thinking by conduit of the class discussions.

Advice for students:
Schedule time throughout the day to get some of the assigned reading done. I took this class during my first semester of college, and I found that the hardest part about this class was getting the reading done on time. Also, participate in the class discussions, even if it means just giving a singular input and then sitting out the rest of it to listen/take notes.
