    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was great not only because of the material, but because Greg Heinzman is such a fantastic teacher! Just as the class title says, you focus on civics and ethics in the world by learning what drives our society and how we determine what is "right and wrong," "normal and not normal," "bad and good," etc. Greg is a down to earth professor who cares about his students and their opinions. In the midst of rather hot button discussions, he never made a student feel like their beliefs were stupid or wrong, he only encouraged them to be able to defend why they feel the way they do.

    Course highlights:

    We spent a lot of time learning about refugees in my class. I had very little knowledge of the whole process going into the class, but I have come away feeling enlightened and inspired to help these people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! This class is all about group discussion and reflection writing so if you don't stay on top of the assigned reading it's going to be obvious.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course as it encourages you to examine not only the base of ethical systems around you, but also your own belief system. This course will allow you to grow as an individual.

    Course highlights:

    During this course you will be learning about Code of Ethics, Moral Code, the Cycle of Socialization, and many other related issues. You will also learn, as I have, how where and when you were raised in combination with who raised you can influence your moral and ethical code in ways of which you were not aware.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I encourage you to complete the readings and the twice weekly written "Reading Responses". This is how the instructor takes attendance and it will be of great help to you later on in the course. Also, be prepared to write several essays, complete a voice-recording project, and become involved in ta local refugee resettlement program.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a nontraditional student returning after 12 years, I was anxious about a lack of perspective younger students may have, leading to opinions without merit. However, the topics were very universal and the many reading assignments offered dissenting opinions. I have a better understanding of why I think the way I do and appreciate the discussions we've had. Not one discussion got carried away by the difference in opinions on a topic because Megan keeps the primary focus on the way we carry out the discussion.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a different way to present by leading a discussion. I've learned about various ways of thinking and understanding, such as the difference in view on a topic by, for example, a utilitarian vs a egalitarian.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the materials and engage in the discussions.
