    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class unless you are VERY interested in media and pr or you will probably find this class boring. Also it is a large lecture course which is not comfortable in my opinion.

    Course highlights:

    The professor is funny but the content isn't very interesting. The discussion classes are just busy work which was annoying.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the discussion class even though they're boring because the homework will be much easier.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives you a lot of insight on the various areas within the Media School. Even if you are not planning on majoring/minoring in anything media related, it is a great way to gain a better understanding of how several different forms of media work (e.g. media science, cinema production, journalism, technologies, etc.).

    Course highlights:

    Taking this course allowed me to better understand exactly what path I want to pursue in the future. I was already planning on majoring in Media, although I was unsure which concentration I was going to pursue. After taking this class and learning about the different areas within the Media School, I was able to make a decision.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes and go to the lectures given by guest speakers (some of them can be a bit boring, but they are important). Also, make sure to go to the discussion sections.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It gives an overall consensus of the entire media school from newspaper editing to sports media. There are plenty of speakers that are brought in to discuss how they are involved within the media school through their specific fields.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that we are not aware of the media because we have been part of it for ages. Sports media with broadcasting has become a booming industry using all sorts of software. The news has become a split issue where fake news exists and real news exists.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A format of fill-in-the-blank notes is provided. What students must do is to show up, download the notes, and pay attention to each part of the class in order to get all of the notes from the lecture for studying for the midterm and final exam. If a speaker comes, you take your own notes. For studying, you need to know the specifics certain important pieces of the readings, who is the author of the readings, what speakers came in to talk about what topics, and major main ideas from the notes.
