Pretty easy, overall.
While I was required to take the course for my major, I learned a lot about communication such as books, newspapers, even movies. I learned the history of these tools of communication, and then the future of these tools. The reason this was interesting for me was because I had no idea that movies, television, even magazines are major tools for communication, and they have been since they were invented.
The highlights of this course were a professor who cared so much for the information she was sharing with the class, you could really tell she loved the topics she was discussing and wanted her students to love them too. Another highlight was the curriculum itself. The layout was incredibly interesting, starting with Communication as a whole, and then breaking it down into different ways of communication such as books, television, and even the printing press.

Advice for students:
Advice I would give to students considering this course is to go in with an open mind. While the course overall is generally easy, with only six quizzes made up of five questions, two midterms, and a final, what you'll learn is very valuable. It's not just a course to skip and think you'll still be able to understand everything, because the idea of communication as a whole is a pretty complex subject. Go into the course open-minded and you'll do just fine, and even find you'll enjoy what you're learning.
