    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you want a class that teaches you how to think, take this. You will walk away so much wiser and so much more able to wade through fake news and unreasonable arguments.

    Course highlights:

    The debate was definitely the highlight. Lots of build-up and absolutely worth all the stress and research. You will learn how to form a strong and valid argument (and learn what that means) while finding out that the reasons you believe certain things is not at all reasonable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this course unless you plan to really read, participate in class discussions, and go all out for the final debate.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class really opened my mind to the world around me and taught me to think critically. It kindled a love of thinking that I previously had been neglecting. Philosophy is one of the most relevant classes I've ever taken, with its heavy focus on deep questions like "How do we know what is true?" and "What ought we to do?".

    Course highlights:

    I gained valuable new perspectives on the way people think and the history of philosophical thought. We discussed deep questions in the context of famous philosophers, and those questions proved a good starting point for my own inquiries. The benefits of philosophy do not stop after the course ends.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course involves a LOT of writing. We sometimes wrote two papers a week. It also involves a lot of very difficult and long readings. People without a background in analyzing literature and reading lengthy prose should expect to reread the readings multiple times.
