    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches about the history behind and the evolution of the media, to become what it is today. It begins all the way back to cave-paints and discussing changes in communication such as writing and goes until "present day", even though present day was when the textbook was published in about 2010. Therefore the changes to media with social media and smart phones is vaguely if at all touched on.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I have a greater appreciation for how communication has evolved. The favorite discussion of this course, while also being the bane of my grade, was a discussion about the differences between speech and writing as different forms of communication.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students taking this course, reading the text is absolutely necessary. The majority of class discussion is based on the reading, although compared to other classes, you will not be completely left behind if you do not read. However, oftentimes there are daily quizzes based on the reading and that is what hurts the majority of students' grades. Also, if you need to fulfill an art credit, this course may fulfill that requirement.
