    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are looking for a course that brings you on a quest after wisdom or that allows you to conjure up a unique style of thinking or type of thought then this course is for you. This course gives you the chance to pursue whether you want to be philosophical or become a philosopher.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the experience to understand that philosophy is an activity of thought. Not only is there critical and comprehensive thought involved but, it strengthens the intellectual process. You get to question theories, sayings, and passages both in the analytical and synthetic sense.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to understand that all things will be questioned in this course albeit your beliefs, beliefs of popular philosophers, and those of seemingly no importance. You will break down the process of thought by resolving confusion, unmasking assumptions, distinguishing importance, and testing positions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires a lot of reading, but it opens your mind to things that you never thought about or even questioned yourself about that you live in your day to day life.

    Course highlights:

    This course makes you challenge yourself and your thoughts as well as reasons as to why you make the decisions that you make in your day to day or even decisions that you have made in the past. I learn to really consider the outcome of a situation before I decide if what I am doing is only the right thing for the moment.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and have an open mind about the information that you will gain in your studies. It will make you reflect back on the Bible.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student, because the Instructor, Dr. Jena Jolissaint is very interactive and also eager and available to assist her students with questions they have. I also would recommend this course because it is a very good introductory course for the topic and will give anyone a great foundation to build on their study of philosophy. It is important for critical thinking as well.

    Course highlights:

    The course is comprehensive and very enlightening. I have learned a lot about many philosopher's ideas and beliefs. This has benefited my ability to think critically, as well as be more open to many different perspectives surrounding religion and science.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, one must read as much material beyond the required reading material as he/she can. One must also participate as much as possible in class discussions, and use proper grammar and punctuation. The ideas expressed in this course allow for a great deal of opinion and conjecture, but also it is important to make sure all cited material is accurate and following the required standard for citing one's work.
