    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At first, GB may come across as disorganized, which is often avoided when looking for a teacher. However, he is more organized and understandable as the course goes on. He also is more focused on the students actually learning something rather than the grade itself. On the weekly quizzes, if he realizes that there is a common misunderstanding on a given topic or question, he will take is time to explain the question and answer so that everyone may understand the information. I would definitely suggest reading the assigned texts, because you will need to answer questions on them.

    Course highlights:

    Because of the weekly quizzes, I was forced to learn more weekly than I normally would have. The texts in this course also forced my brain to be expanded enough to be open to new ideas and new was of thinking of different ideas.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to any ones considering this course is that they should just go for it and see what they think. From what I have heard from people in other sections, I got a teacher I would prefer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to those who would like to get a better understanding of moral comprehension.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned that their are various fallacies that are told through communication and not all are so easily noticed. The highlight of this course is that Burson makes the class work together when going through material that is being taught.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    YOU CAN DO IT! Stay awake, stay focused, and you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Despite being a general education course, this class takes on a unique form through a fictional book with non-fiction material which gives an edge and form of intrigue throughout the course - Sophie's World. Its fictional appearance does not distract from the learning material for the class, but the professor does add other material that should be taken close attention to for it may be on the tests and/or quizzes

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course, I went through an evolution of thought that has even formed my own philosophy. You begin in Ancient Greece with minds like Sophocles and Democritus until you reach more modern thought with Neitzche, Darwin, and Marx. All these philosophers have their own ideas where some even build onto previous ideas in order for us to understand the universe as we now know it to be today. A person learns that a thought does not come from nowhere. It takes time and patience and advancement to form a thought from so many theories and experiments because nothing is definitive until proven true.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you not only have to read the book in its entirety - maybe two to three times, but also you should pay attention to the professor and what he has to say. taking notes during movies would be helpful also in order to understand more of the material. Note-cards are great study helpers when tests and quizzes come around. At first the class may appear easy but it is like any other course where a student must pay attention and give an equal amount of study time for.
