    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    More often than not, I find that the instructor of a course can make or break the situation for each student enrolled in the class. In the case of my COMMS 101 class taught by Kevin John, the class was made. Something that's great about Kevin is that he's not super old, so he's able to understand the students and relate to them on a personal level. In a very literal way he is able to 'speak their language,' and especially in a course like communications it's important to be able to properly address the audience to ensure understanding. The class itself covers the history of various methods of communication, the current mediums of communication, and the potential direction that the communications field is headed. Kevin covers things in a way that is intellectually enlarging as well as being fun and relatable.

    Course highlights:

    Being an 'intro' course, it covered many of the basics of communications, especially as they tied into our modern day. We discussed social media, books, magazines, newspaper, videos, music, radio, and many other forms of communication. When I took this course, I only had one lecture every week, so it was difficult at times to remember to do the reading and prepare for the quizzes, but mastering those skills and planning ahead was one of the most valuable things that I learned that semester. Some of the highlights of the class include some of Kevin's remarks. Being a pretty young and hip professor, he was able to really connect with the students in the discussion and knew how to get the kids to talk. It was great!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're interested in the communications program but aren't sure which emphasis you'd like to declare (public relations, marketing, journalism), be sure to take this introductory course. Not only does it cover facts about the history of communications, it also explains each of the emphases which allows each student in the class decide where they'd like to end up in the future.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Church keeps the course entertaining, and has a passion for Communications. He makes the material easy and fun to learn. You're expected to know the material to get a good grade, but the workload was never overbearing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the ins and outs of media news, advertising, and entertainment. I liked having current, real-world examples in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook readings before every class, prepare for pop quizzes, and be willing to learn.
