    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a fabulous entry to the world of media and communications, highlighting history, modernization and the cause and effect of media on the public(s) masses.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course include delving deep into the origin and consequence of propaganda, discussing Freud's effects on media relations, and studying connotation and denotation in the context of famously controversial American photographs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading will make you more intelligent, but discussing the underlying messages and key points of the authors is really the bulk of this class. The beauty of media is that it remains applicable long after its freethinkers are gone, meaning that examples change and adapt with the passage of time. This is a relevant, stimulating course that will give back to you as much work as you put into it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's an intro class so you have to take the course. But it is great so I do recommend it!

    Course highlights:

    Basically you learn topics and parts of media that you will learn deeper later during MCC.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dont stress over this course. The professor is very chill and the class is easy as long as you go to lectures and recitations most of the times.
