    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Koshkaryan is awesome. The class is super interesting although not crazy hard. She is super sweet and super available to explain things and help you out on the test.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about early philosophy beliefs but also how those beliefs are incorporated in today's world and how those beliefs relate to today which help shape personal beliefs and standards that shape each of our actions hopefully for the betterment of mankind.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the material given. Go to her office hours. Become good friends with the professor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because the books were very hard to understand and the professor was not very easy to understand. The professor has a very thick Russian accent that is often very hard to look past, making her lectures a battle against sleep and a struggle to understand. However, I was fortunate enough to get a good TA, and she made the course bearable. The books take a while to read, and even after reading them, you aren't sure what you read because the books do not straight out say what they mean.

    Course highlights:

    It was interesting to learn the many perspectives of life that the philosophers had. It was cool to read about how they interpreted the purpose of language and every day objects. The highlight of this course were there Friday discussions with the TA, because this class is divided into a lecture portion and a discussion portion. Until the discussion the class was almost always confused about the reading assignments. Basically, the highlight of the course was the TA.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read consistently and always come to class prepared to discuss the assigned readings, at least of Fridays. The professor is pretty lenient when it comes to being completely caught up, but to get the most out of the discussions and lectures it is crucial that you read daily. There are no essays but the tests are all short answer, so be prepared to write a lot. There is not extra credit, but the good news is that the material is not cumulative. So, you can learn and flush in the class if you wanted to.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I thought that this class would focus more on metacognition, but it really is more about the logic and mathematics behind reasoning. Despite the course textbook being called "Art of Reasoning", it felt very much like an annoying math class to me.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights - the professor is hot as hell and really caring What did I learn - square of opposition

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lecture all of the time. Take notes during the lecture. Take a study pill as well because listening to anyone talk for 75 minutes straight is annoying.
