    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was highly informative, super down-to-earth, entertaining, and also really great at challenging the way you think. The professor is always understanding, helpful, and kind too! We had great discussions in this class, and I actually looked forward to it every day. Definitely take this class if given the chance, I took it as dual enrollment (and it transferred easily to my college!). Not too much homework, and you still learn a lot.

    Course highlights:

    This course really helps you learn how to think differently. It teaches you basic but important things like logical fallacies, and also deeper topics involving world views, politics, and anything imaginable. It challenges you to open your mind to view ideas and arguments from a different stance. You will learn how to strengthen your own beliefs, but also understand others' beliefs. The professor is an amazing teacher, and I actually looked forward to this class!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to ask questions - there are lots of big and seemingly confusing terms to keep up with, but you'll get the hang of it quickly if you pay attention. Take notes, highlight in your book, and study the terms. Read the material, it really actually was pretty interesting. But on the super long reading sections, even the professor recommended skimming at times. Ask questions and make study groups!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is a class that I would recommend to people who aren't great at philosophical thinking as Deitch is a fun teacher and an easy grader.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about many historical philosophical people and the ideas that they had.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you read the books to get an understanding of the course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Schoettle was great! I would recommend his course in particular because he gave so many sources for each topic we covered. Although he is rated the hardest Philosophy professor at Messiah, it is easy to do well on his tests if you read through each article assigned and understand the readings before class. His review class prior to the test is a great cover of material, and his teaching style makes class fun and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The class covers four units, each one connecting to the previous. I learned a lot from the unit "Do we have free will?" because Prof. Schoettle gave a vast array of articles that describe different views of the many philosophers and he explained what each philosopher believed very well. I learned so much about life because each topic eventually connected to Christianity, which was helpful going through a Christian college.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the articles he assigns! Although he covers the material in class, it helps when taking the test to have read it on your own.
