    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Unless you like philosophy or you have to take the class, I honestly would not take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I think the best thing about the course is it really does challenge your to think in a way that most people don't think on a daily basis. I honestly feel like there are never really any answers to anything in philosophy, it just challenges you to develop your own answers to life's question with a justification for why you hold such beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention from the very beginning! This is not a class you can B.S. your way through....oh and STUDY!! Although the test are not long, they are challenging. Also, be prepared to do a lot of reading and writing; probably more than your average course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, Philosophy 201 was probably the best class I took all Fall. I did take this course online and the Professor was very helpful. So long as you keep up with the assignments, you won't fall behind and that in and of itself is integral to Philosophy. There's a lot of writing and reading, but, do them ahead of time if you can! It's worth it.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights had to be that when you looked at the assignment, it seems as though it's really rough - that's because it is. It focuses on applying the material read into critical thinking by form of writing essays or short prompts. You will get split up into groups and all you have to do is answer the question on the Discussion Board and obviously discuss. They're short, too! 200 words minimum. I learned a lot more than I thought I would - I'm not a huge fan of Philosophy, but I enjoyed this course. I learned about the views of man (e.g., materialistic versus dualistic) and enjoyed the logic of deduction and induction. Overall, the course is not bad at all. I recommend taking it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep on top of your game. Don't let the assignments roll by as it would be incredibly difficult to catch back up! Also, keep an open mind, it is fantastic how much you learn when you think of learning as an opportunity and not as a chore.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    An excellent beginning Philosophy course to establish basic concepts with a biblical perspective!

    Course highlights:

    This course breaks down the differences between philosophy and theology so you can move forward with the proper mentality to complete your assignments. Ideas of philosophy with Christianity are explored and one is taught to use philosophy with religion.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and reread. A lot of the course is reading based and you have to take notes to prepare for the quizzes and assignments.
