    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone who loves art and/or philosophy. It helped improve my critical thinking skills and its discussion-based curriculum allowed me a chance to learn from other students by hearing their perspectives on the topics discussed. The texts we read were hard, but they really did help boost my reading and comprehension skills. I went it thinking I knew a whole lot, I realized I knew very little, and, in the end, came out knowing more than ever. It's a humbling course and a character builder.

    Course highlights:

    I had a greater understanding of philosophy and how to make a philosophical argument. I learned the connection art has with philosophy. I learned about some of the greatest thinkers in history: Kant, Plato, Nietzsche, Derrida and Heidegger. I visited modern art exhibits and learned how artists today apply philosophical concepts in their work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be humble. If you've never taken a philosophy class before, don't go in thinking it's going to be a cake walk. It's tough. The readings are tough. Be sure to ask plenty of questions and accept criticism.
