    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students who are not interested in philosophy. It requires quite a bit of brain power just to focus on the readings for the class. The discussions themselves can turn into debates because in philosophy, nothing is certain.

    Course highlights:

    I had some prior knowledge to philosophy and its great thinkers from high school, but I learned how to solve problems by using different methods. For example, Kantianism, Lockian, Utilitarian, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put your thinking caps on. Just know it will be hard to concentrate if you are not prepared for the class. Do the readings!

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very interesting. It is about the paranormal and the professor makes the course fun because he relates with the students. We break down psychics, ghosts, and many other things and by the end of the course, we will have the ability to decide for ourselves if we believe ghosts, psychics and the paranormal are real.

    Course highlights:

    There were many highlights to this course. Some of them were learning about the paranormal, learning about the human body and brain and learning about my own personal beliefs. Being able to break down each aspect of the paranormal was interesting because I got to go deeper into it and learn the truths about them and if they are actually real. Also, we learned a little bit about how the human brain works. For example, we learned that most haunting or psychic readings are only true to use because we want them to be. That we believe what we are hearing or seeing because we need that closure or that comfort from losing a loved one. Sometimes it's because we want to feel special, that we have something that makes us different from everyone else. I also got to learn about myself and my belief system. I had to set aside my religious and other beliefs for this class and really open myself up to the idea that all paranormal activity could be true. Some of my beliefs that I had coming into this course about the paranormal stayed the same, but some changed throughout the time of the course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a student wanting to learn about the paranormal, hauntings or the sixth sense then you should take this class. If you are interested in learning about the human brain or our personal need for attention then you should also take this course. Overall, the course taught me a lot about myself and others and it was a pretty easy class with just a few response papers.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was a bit strict about certain things being done a certain way. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I've never had anyone else have such requirements for papers before, even the other professors I had during the same semester.

    Course highlights:

    We analyzed horror movies and discussed what qualities they had that made them horrific. This also involved looking at the movies from a more sociological/psychological angle.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor requires students to read a lot of papers, and she will check to see if you've read. Also, you need to be thinking about final paper topics from the start and get on your paper long before the deadlines if you don't want to be stressed out.
