    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the topic touches many different subject areas. Between business and medical, one can get a true understanding of ethics. Because this course is general it can be applied to any subject.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the small group sessions that took place every Friday. The TAs re-explained the lessons of the week in more laymen terms solidifying the knowledge that we had gained prior to that class meeting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need some tools for taking notes. Whether it is a notebook or a laptop you must be quick in recording your notes. In the exam the professor wants to hear the same terminology that was given to you via PowerPoint presentation.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am really enjoying this course. If you like to think about difficult issues and like good arguments based on strong, logical reasoning, then this is a great lower-level course for you to start with.

    Course highlights:

    This course really helped to strengthen my reasoning abilities and to better structure a good argument. For me, its been more of an introduction to philosophical reasoning than to philosophical theories, though it does give those (its a philosophy class after all)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend that you don't skip classes and be attentive at class. Missing classes and/or being inattentive is a really good way to fall behind in this class because we go through so much course content in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting class, it provides ethical perspective on controversial topics (meaning what I ought to do concerning different topics). The philosophical reasoning behind pro and con sides does open up conversations in ways that can cause people to understand their view/perspective. This course is aim to further your thinking process in a philosophical analytical way therefore, a lot of writing is required to get your points or reasons across.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned I can use understand how to address controversial topics or questions and philosophical reasoning to persuade people to understand my view on different topics. I have learned that conversations/interactions will stop if you force your opinions on anyone and do not take in account of other opinions from both the pro and the con side of different topics. Reasoning in a philosophical way helped my writing skills improve overall.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in the course, going to the teaching assistants' for further break down of subjects and to answer any questions you have on an assignment will help so much. The teaching assistants' are there to answer questions and help you understand the subject so visiting their office hours often is important.
