    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor kept class interesting and only ever cancelled due to a TED talk she was giving at the university. Students felt inclined to attend and information was never obsolete. She understood giving student information at a level anyone could understand, and treated students as equals.

    Course highlights:

    I gained media evaluation skills, such as ensuring the sources are accurate and tell full story, and make sure to interpret almost always present bias, and determine what the message is, whether it is to sway opinions, offer satire and entertainment, or just to inform viewers.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is great for any communications major, and for anyone who does not know what to study. Be sure to be thorough in notes for the exam is almost entirely based off the lectures, and talking with the professors and TAs outside of class can always be beneficial .

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gave me a great opportunity to view the way we receive information through media in a very different and more complex way. I did think that some of the information felt unnecessary and the history was sometimes hard to follow.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I got from this course was a new mindset on how the media portrays different stories. I am now able to read a news story and see bias or swayed information

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to take a lot of notes! Also part of your grade is based on class participation. The professor gives you a couple of different opportunities to get these points but you have to be in class the day you are randomly called or else you can lose points.
