During my first semester of my sophomore year, I took a class called Moral Problems. The class is just what it seems. We discussed moral issues that cause controversy world wide. From topics such as abortion and capital punishment, we discussed them all from top to bottom. The professor was especially good at making sure that the class discussed not only one side or argument to the issue but all sides no matter how faulty the arguments were.
I like to think of myself as a very open-minded person. But this class tested me.Even though I thought of myself as an open-minded person, this class most definitely helped me grow as a person. Topics, views, and perspectives were brought up in class that although I was aware they existed, I had never actually thought about. And finally, I did.
Some of the topics we discussed were very serious, or personal issues and although the professor made it very clear that all opinions were welcome, I did not always share what I was thinking.
Overall, I really enjoyed this class. The professor may have been somewhat scatter brained at times but it made the class interesting. I learned a lot. I feel that as leaders it is very important to be aware of moral and social issues going on and this class does a great job at exposing us to those issues and forcing us to discuss them in a respectful manner.
