    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this Towson Seminar course, titled "The Limits of Reason." This course really made me think and interact with readings from philosophers that I've never read or even heard of before. Professor Brophy's evaluations of the readings are insightful and I actually based on honors college application on his course and how it inspired me to further learn more about philosophy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the beliefs of philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, exerts from a dialogue of Einstein and Freud, as well as Descarte and Kant. I enjoyed reading Socrates works and evaluating the Socratic Method. This course also allowed me to view life with a different point of view, with a more critical and questionable method, always asking myself why or how the things happen in the world. This course gives you a different way of looking at not only the physical world, but everything else it encompasses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to read and take notes on the readings, as well as speaking in class. Participation will sneak up on you, but just including your thoughts or questions on a reading are good enough to start a conversation and keep it going, and you'll also get points! And do not miss more than 2-3 classes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor, a theoretical physicist, teaches this class with nothing but the most enthusiasm. He's not particularly boisterous, but you can tell he is passionate about the subjects he covers in the course. There is a lot to discuss when it comes to metaphysics, so he decided to give a summary of many metaphysical topics along with some science. There weren't many assignments and if there was, it was an essay about a topic that you could've chosen if you wanted to. If you like philosophy, science, or both then this class would be a good fit for you.

    Course highlights:

    There was a class on 'free will' and whether or not it exists. Initially, I believed that I was, as Henley would suggest, the "master of my fate" and "captain of my soul". During the class we discussed something called the universe block theory. It suggested that, due to the constant of the speed of light, that there might not be free will at all. Before that class I was sure that I had some semblance of free will, but now, even after that class, I'm not so sure.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are no tests, so no studying was needed. Though I would suggest trying to become interested in the topics, otherwise you'll make things harder on yourself.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because it required a lot of work for a general education course and the information was not clearly preseted.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about rock and rap music in both the United States and several Latin American countries. We learned how to analyze music, the different elements that go into music, and the effects globalization has on music.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the music that is provided and know how to write.
