Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Pretty easy, overall.
I recommend this course wholeheartedly - even if you don't plan on pursuing a career in journalism. This course provides a general background of journalism, its major contributors, and how you can best contribute. Although I am extremely passionate about journalism, it wasn't necessarily the subject matter that made this my favorite class, but the instructor. I had Professor Nancy Sharkey, and she made this class interesting, interactive, and fun. Her dedication to journalism is profound, and she has made a hell of a career for herself in it. If you can, meet with her (and her husband) outside the classroom and you will not regret it - some of the best stories I've heard.
As I mentioned before, the class does a general run-through of the history of journalism, the major contributors, and how you can best involved as an individual. The course featured many guest speaks, most of whom have made paramount impacts in journalism. Mostly, I learned where I want to be in the large field in journalism and how to get there.
