Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it is structured in a way that allows students to delve into the basics of ethics. I find ethical reasoning to be very interesting and this class definitely allowed me to explore that interest. I love how discussion based Dr. Clifton makes the course and how there are a lot of smaller assignments and not just three or four large assignments. I think these smaller assignments prompt better discussion and engagement in his class.
I gained a lot of insight into different ethical theories and different ways of thinking. I think the most interesting part of this class was reading and learning about the objections to the theories we were studying. I found it to be incredibly interesting to see how philosopher's responded to people's objections to the theory and drawing my own conclusions about whether or not I thought the theory could hold in society.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course doing the out of class reading assignments is essential. Be prepared for in-class writing assignments and weekend discussion board assignments via Canvas. Class participation is vital in this course and can heavily impact your grade so do not be afraid to speak up in class and join the discussion!
