    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think that this class was significantly difficult, but if you like being challenged intellectually, this class may be for you. Personally, this class wasn't my favorite because of all the writing involved, as well as the difficult subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were seeing different philosophers perspectives on topics such as knowledge, free will, and morality. The readings were hard to understand a lot of the time, but the professor took time to really explain what the philosophers were trying to convey, which was extremely helpful when writing the essays.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to take this course you should have a genuine interest in philosophy, otherwise you might end up hating or dropping it because it isn't an easy class, by any means. Also, make time for your essays because they require some thinking and critical analysis.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting first taste of the world of philosophy. Discussion on topics such as the existence of God and the morality of man are explored.

    Course highlights:

    The course is (or was when I took it) divided into three major questions and arguments were presented throughout the topic covered. I.e. the first topic was on the existence of God, and there were many arguments presented for or against the existence of a higher power, as well as their counterarguments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention during lecture because you need to understand the arguments to write a cohesive paper once those are due. There are three major papers, the midterm, and the final, and all ask for you to provide some insight on the arguments presented in class

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning arguments from various philosophers and for various topics, anyone who is interested in developing new ways of thinking and learning as well as seeing topics that are related to every day life decisions from a new perspective.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the reading is very compelling... At first, it may seem boring but if you focus and listen to the discussion it is very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the reading material, ask questions when you have them don't wait to ask later, ask question and engage during discussion classes because this is when you will get the most feedback.
