    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course because it didn't seem to offer much material. There were a few terms that are useful to know in the social sciences world, but besides that I wouldn't be surprised if I never discuss what I learned in this class again. It just seemed very impractical.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a few essential terms for use in social sciences and in the science world in general (terms such as paradigm and ontology).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn every term and main topic forwards and backwards. If you can't recall them quickly, you'll have a tough time in class discussions.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course challenges you to think critically about some of the text and understand how philosophy and science has affected Western society. It can be difficult to understand at times, but it also teaches you how to study effectively since it is not material that is generally covered.

    Course highlights:

    This course gave me a basic background in philosophy and how it has affected Western society over the last few centuries. While a good portion of the material felt dense, overall it was a chance to think differently about popular thought not too long ago.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study and ask questions because a lot of this material will be new and different to you.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is extremely interesting. The professor makes it worth going to every lecture. She makes it all readings understandable. Even though there's what seems like an eternity of readings, attend every class prepared and you'll understand everything she teaches. Overall, the readings themselves weren't tedious to read as I was very interesting in the topics they covered.

    Course highlights:

    This course highly influenced the points of views and ideas I currently have. Many of the topics were contemporary and in line with many of today's important events. The unit that covered "Patriarchy and Gender Issues" was my favorite and what I learned in this class definitely molded what I think of today's society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do all readings and assignments. Laura gives plenty of extra credit opportunities, it's wise for you to take most, if not all of them. The class will become easier as time passes, but at the beginning it'll seem very demanding.
