    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At first I was skeptical about taking a course online, however, Dr. Schafer was very helpful. He was always available when questions were needed and his syllabus was very thorough and easy to follow. Although this course was a good course to take I only recommend taking it online if you are good with deadlines. You really have to be on top of the deadlines for blogs and discussions.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the things that I really enjoyed were the interactive discussions and the readings picked for the semester. The set up of the class allows you to discuss with your classmates on different philosophies and learn how people think. From this class my eyes were opened to how different peoples ideologies really are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course the individual needs to make sure that they always do the reading. Also they need to be able keep up with the times for assignment turn in. If you are not good with time constraints then you will need to make sure you keep a planner handy with the schedule.
