    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He is terrible. So rude and arrogant. a lot of writing and reading assignments. rambles during class, so boring. The worst thing about this class is the professor. DO NOT TAKE HIM. he should be fired.

    Course highlights:

    Nothing, he's terrible. He rambles throughout class and when you participate in class he acts as if is answer is the only correct answer and everyone else's interpretations are wrong.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take Spinks. I regret ever taking him.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Spinks is horrible. He is condescending and rude, no matter how good of a student you are. He has no concern for the students themselves and does a poor job of keeping them interested in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was it ending.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this class. It's not worth the time, especially for an elective.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is an excellent survey to core philosophical concepts throughout history. The course covers from ancient Greece all the way up to the writings of Nietzsche.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to examine documents more closely, and to think on a higher level. I also learned how to compare viewpoints from a variety of sources.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to actually do the assigned readings! You'll understand the concepts better than if you would have simply used Sparknotes.
