    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course if you want to study ethics and logic. She presents her lecture with a power point and she dives into today's controversial topics.

    Course highlights:

    The quizzes and exam are taken online. I learned about the different philosophies and how to differentiate between them. After, she talked about both sides of controversial topics such as abortion, euthanasia, the death penalty etc.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read before class and before taking the quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because this class was very opinionated-in a good way! I am one who appreciates diversity and formulates my own opinion and argument on controversial topics based on what other students opinions are. This class discussed many moral issues and always came back to the question on either this is morally wrong or right. Not only did I have the opportunity to learn more about these topics, but I also gained the chance to reflect and develop my own opinion on such topics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the group discussions. This is where everyone was given the chance to speak their minds on the opinions from different philosophers. This part of the class was always so intriguing to me because people interpret things so differently from one another. After taking this class, I really valued the class discussions and the assortment of thought process's that fellow students produced.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this class with a very open mind. People are going to disagree with you, but that is okay! Having someone disagree with you will allow you the opportunity to make your opinion stronger. Having a fellow classmate counter your opinion only shows the gaps you have in your thinking, which enables you to devise a more sufficient belief.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it challenges the way you might think about certain moral issues. The course also goes over the different ways of looking at a situation and also helps one understand why morals vary from culture to culture. The tests may be a little difficult, but as long as you do the quizzes on time and as long as you do well on the final paper, you should be able to pass the class with an A or B. Nicoleta Apostol is also a very interesting instructor who will keep you attentive.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different view of ethics and how they have affected different cultures.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Plan ahead, especially for the final paper. Look up a topic that you are passionate about. She will give you a good grade if you show that you are passionate about a certain topic.
