    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required class, but Dr. Madden makes it very easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    Through the class, I learned how to make philosophical arguments about time and an ultimate being. I also learned some pretty funny examples about matter.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dr. Madden is a very tough teacher. He expects a lot out of his students. Yet, if you are willing to put in the work it will be very rewarding.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this is a difficult course I would recommend it to my fellow students. The material can be confusing and it is definitely a time consuming class, but it is very interesting. As long as you put in the effort required and you exhaust all of your resources (if need be) you will do well.

    Course highlights:

    I especially enjoyed learning about the different philosophers and their beliefs and opinions. Learning the logic material was also very interesting and will be helpful in other classes, and in all aspects of life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that each student considering this course be aware of the work load and the amount of time it will require. As long as the student stays on top of the homework assignments, take notes diligently and studies them, they should do fine in the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it if you are good at holding yourself accountable to taking the quizzes before each class. I would not recommend it if you do not like to memorize a lot of things.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think like Aristotle and other philosophers. Not all of them agreed with one another and getting to see the differences between arguments and thinking was very helpful to me. The professor made the class enjoyable and fun to learn about the various points of views that the philosophers believed in.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise everyone taking or considering to take this course to read the readings and take the quizzes before each class. They may not be worth much, but they add up in the end. Make flashcards or a Quizlet for every test.
