    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are taking a journalism course for the first time, I would not recommend this professor for you. She has lots of experience in the field, but doesn't seem like she has much experience teaching. She can come across and rude and harsh at times. This was the only class where I was required to go to off campus events and write stories about them. She is also a tough grader

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to ask thorough questions in this course. The professor does have a lot of knowledge to pass on about the field, as she has written for several big papers. I also learned about when it would be best to use the information that she gave to us. If you make an appointment for her office hours, she is very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and be prepared for pop quizzes. Make sure you keep up on the reading and take good notes during class. If you have questions about something during the lecture, do not hesitate to ask her.
