    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Other then my personal reasons, I would recommend this course because it requires thinking beyond your own personal reasoning. It requires you to ask more than just why and because there is never a right answer.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course had to be discussing prisons systems and the disparity of African-American men in prisons in comparison to their racial counterparts. Another highlight was the discussion of four different ethical approaches. I found it to be very interesting how the forefathers of these different approaches looked at ethical dilemmas differently.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask plenty of questions if you don't understand something. This is usually a fairly large class. With that being said, if you don't understand something then usually 20 other people don't understand the concept either. Another piece of advice would be to go back over the powerpoints. It may be specific to the instructor I had, but many things that were taken from the powerpoints and notes written on the board , were 95% of the time on the test.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. It isn't difficult at all. The concepts are easy and it doesn't require much studying. Also, the professor is great and doesn't expect too much.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you learn about the different moral theories. There are four: utilitarianism, kantian ethics, virtue ethics, ethics of care. That is what you mostly focus on. After that, for the rest of the year, you discuss articles that you've read, which isn't for a grade. At the end, you do a five-page panel report and thats it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you know the moral theories and what they consist of, you will be fine for the course.
