    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You really learn how to think for yourself and critically. This class matured me more than I thought it would have. I felt way more educated about world problems and how to react and look at the situations.

    Course highlights:

    we read Euthryphro, the Gym and a lot on Socrates and applied these stories to real life greed and religion. We did group work every week discussing questions that really made you think about each article or story. Our professor really made us work and use our brains, but it was so fun and I felt so proud and good that I really took something away from this class and learned more about myself and about Socrates and what it means to be pious and just how to be a good person and do the right thing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read the material. It is actually. Super insightful and read it a couple of times over until you really understand it. Our professor wa super helpful and actually loved having discussions with us. She barely lectured and actually let us do a lot of group work so we were never bored. The midterm and final are written essays but they are like a page each and if you read the material and do the work and come to class and study for a few hours you will have no problem getting an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the reading, this will help you to participate in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's different from classes that only require memorization skills to pass. Instead, this class will require you think for the answer from your own perspective, which are answers that you can't simply find online with a google search and perhaps, don't even exist at all. Overall, this class will make you think harder than before, and although it can be at times frustrating, by the end, hopefully you'll come to appreciate the impossible questions, and even more eye-opening answers.

    Course highlights:

    The epic poems of Homer were the highlights of this course. I learned about the works of Homer, The Iliad and The Odyssey, which brought the true definition of a human being and our problematic want for immortality.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those who considering this course, I would definitely buy the books and more importantly, read them. Although the epic poems may seem long, using spark notes the night before the quiz won't help you pass.
