In your college years, you should take classes to increase both your general knowledge (breadth) and your knowledge about a particular academic field (depth). I believe that there is enough time to take many classes in both the breadth and depth groups. I've been out of college for more than a decade, and I still think about the classes I took and didn't take. Here, then, are my recommendations for the breadth courses.

--One Introduction to Western Philosophy course.
--One Principles of Critical Reasoning or Principles of Argumentation course (a philosophy or speech course).
