Pretty easy, overall.
First of all, it is a requirement for film and screenwriting students, but I would recommend it for other majors as well. It is a nice way to learn about the origins of film. The first half of class is usually a discussion (which can seem long but is usually interesting) while the second half is spent watching a film.
You learn about the entirety of the origin of film. The movies you watch differ for each course, but my favorites were Casablanca and A Face in the Crowd.

Advice for students:
Just make sure you do the discussion questions by the end of the quarter!
