    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a fun course to take. You get to interview other people around Columbia, but the course is pretty work intensive with very strict deadlines. If you aren't organized, I would suggest you don't take this..

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about writing and the correct grammar usage every journalist should be using. It is different that the writing in an English course, but it was useful information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I said before, if you don't think you are organized or not good with deadlines, then you probably shouldn't take this course. Otherwise, it is a fun course to take.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was required for journalism students, and even though it's dread by most, it really helped push me out of my comfort zone and get me used to writing journalistically. You had to write on hard deadlines, learned about structuring news stories, and were exposed to proper writing style.

    Course highlights:

    Some personal highlights were getting to meet new people in the community that I used as sources/inspiration for my out-of-class writing assignments. I got to learn more about how to structure a long-form story, which is something I'm really interested in doing. It was cool to read peers' stories and see what they were able to write, as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare ahead of time. Brainstorm story idea well in advance of the date that your pitches are due. Do as much research as you can on a topic before you even pitch it, so that you can have sources to talk to, ideas on what to ask, and just a general idea on how to get a good story. Contact your sources sooner than later! It will help save you from rushing to finish a story before it's due.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Liz made this class, which is normally terrible, incredibly enjoyable. She wanted each of us to succeed and she was always making sure we were personally okay. She understood what each of us were dealing with, and that college life outside class can often be difficult and overwhelming. She was so personal, and this made the class so much better.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about interacting with adults and important public figures. The amount of people you have to email, call, and interview for this class can be overwhelming, but by the end I was comfortable doing it. It challenges you to go outside of your comfort zone, and do the difficult things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to take it. Just know that you will get through it. Don't give up on it. It's hard, but at the end of the semester you'll look back at everything you've done and you'll be so proud of yourself. Don't feel the need to be perfect, it'll take so much pressure of yourself. Do your best because your best is all you can do. Communicate with your professor, because they know what they're doing and they love to help you. Get to know the people in your lab section, because they will support you and help you out. You're all in it together. My class was very tight knit, and it made it so much better and enjoyable knowing I could ask my classmates for help.
