Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The interesting aspect to this course is that it is required for graduation for journalism students. I would still recommend it however because it teaches you about a lot of free speech rights relevant to today's society. You learn a lot about what the media can and cannot do when it comes to the First Amendment and free speech, which is also helpful to someone who plans on pursuing a career that will require them to be in the public eye.
One of the greatest accomplishments I took from this course was being able to better articulate myself when it comes to voicing my opinion about certain subjects. My professor asked a lot of thought-provoking questions about controversial issues in the media, especially concerning the internet, and it was challenging and fun being able to talk about things that I was never prior confronted with.

Advice for students:
Please read the lesson material ahead of time because the book is very detailed with information, and the professor doesn't ask easy question either. Also, one aspect of the class that can easily jeopardize your grade is not preparing enough for the weekly quizzes, and to be prepared for those, you have to read everything in the weekly lesson and the book chapters as well.
