Courses Taught

Since 1996, I have taught around 215 face-to-face undergraduate courses of all levels in Philosophy, Religious Studies, and other areas of the Humanities.


Starting in 1999 with v1 of Blackboard, I have over 225 online and/or hybrid courses of all levels in these areas under my belt as well. In addition to Blackboard, I am proficient with Canvas, D2L, and Moodle.

I have a Quality Matters Online Teaching Certification too.


I love to teach, and, in many ways, I live to teach.


And, as those of us who spend plenty of time with students know, teaching informs research, and vice versa.

Undergraduate Courses

Email me at robertarp320 [at] gmail.com for a list of undergraduate courses in Philosophy, Religious Studies, and the Humanities that I have taught thus far.


Some courses I have taught once; however, most of them I have taught more than once, and several of them I have taught multiple times. For example, courses called PHIL 240: Leadership Ethics and HUM 200: Introduction to the Humanities: The Great Thinkers, I have taught only once so far; the courses PHILOS 480: Environmental Ethics and PH 410: Metaphysics a few times so far; but PHILOS 210: Introduction to Philosophy, PHL 230: Ethics, and PHIL 100: Critical Thinking, I have taught each upwards of 60 times and counting.


Here are the undergraduate courses I have developed from scratch and been fortunate enough to teach:


PHIL 4930: Teleology (Special Topics)

I developed this course while I was working on a dissertation topic at SLU.


PHILOS 480: Logic, Language, and Media Madness (Selected Topics)
