    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a refreshing change of pace from the rest of my classes that semester. I loved that we focused on learning together as a class, and we weren't expected to memorize everything that we were being taught. This was my favorite class that I have taken at BYU because you really only get out of the class what you want to. And let's face it, I loved watching movie clips for a couple hours a week.

    Course highlights:

    I loved that we were taught through the visual style of learning and that very early on the professor made it clear that no answer was wrong as long as we could back it up. This gave me as a student a lot more confidence in myself regarding the course, and I was able to understand a lot more from our projects because of it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just keep an open mind when watching all of the films for the weekly write ups. They may not be the type of films that you would choose to watch on a Friday night, but they have real value and will teach you something if you let them.
