    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think it is essential for a college student to take a Philosophy class, especially if it is available at a higher level. Critical thinking is imperative to developing the skills required to function successfully in society. However, this class did not challenge my beliefs so much as it merely presented the ideas of philosophers. I had hoped to have more discussions in class. Nonetheless, as I applied myself in this course and analyzed the readings with an open mind, I was able to arrive at solid conclusions of what I believe about the world and my place in it.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we had primary sources; that is, we read the actual writings of the big philosophical thinkers of history. This was challenging, but proved to be a rewarding endeavor in the end. At the end of the course, we had to submit a journal of our thoughts based on each topic covered in the semester. This was a neat way to reflect on what we had been exposed to and how it applied to our beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this course, one must always do the reading, and then be willing to speak up in class discussions. Be opinionated, but also do not be closed off to different ways of thinking.
