    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sut Jhally is an incredible teacher. You might not receive much face to face time with him, especially if you take it online, like I did, but he has so much real life experience conducting studies and working with other communication and media experts, he has so much to offer the course.

    Course highlights:

    I never really thought of myself as media savvy, but after taking this course, I feel much more open minded about the media, and I can see hidden messages that I never knew were there. I'm much more critical now of things that I would never have noticed before, and it makes me a more aware consumer as well as communication studies major. Whenever I produce something for another class, I wonder what type of ads would go along with it, and how my piece of work can be used to sell things for others, and whether or not I want that. The course really opens your eyes to the way that media is used as more than an entertainment outlet as we might think, and it shows you ways that you are being guided, and the way that you guide the media.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to have discipline to take this course, especially if it's online. There is a lot of readings, as well as video lectures. If you study the materials and keep an open mind, there is no reason that you shouldn't get an excellent mark in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very interesting and relevant to the lives of young adults today. Professor Jhally is a brilliant man who makes the content interesting and really knows what he is talking about

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the effects of advertising on people today, especially children. I learned the how much the advertising market aims at children, how ads work, and how much we interact with advertisements on an everyday basis. I also learned what ads are doing to our wellbeing and what our future holds in terms of advertising as social communication

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is really amazing but only if you put in the time to do the work. The course is online so you're responsible for getting the information from the readings, lectures, and movies. If you are the type of student who procrastinates and doesn't take the initiative, this class is not for you
