    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I do not feel like I really learned anything groundbreaking in this course, and spent much of my time just trying to catch-up on writing information from article after article of current events that he requires you to know in detail.

    Course highlights:

    This course is a very general overview of journalism and media, with a very large emphasis on news media.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If your major is in this area, then this course is a good introduction for what to expect. Additionally, the professor often brings in guest speakers which may be instrumental in landing an internship to advance your career. If your major does not fall into this category, however, you likely will not find the course very interesting or applicable and should consider taking something else.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The content of the course itself was extremely interesting. At the beginning of every lecture Wulfmeyer would present several current topics in the media industry, articles regarding everything from the release of Snapchat's Spectacles to the coverage of the presidential election. However, although the concepts of journalism were fun to learn, Wulfmeyer was rarely effective at teaching the concepts due to his tendencies to go off on tangents while presenting current topics. A vast majority of the class content, particularly what was featured on exams, had to be completely self-taught.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout JMS 200 I learned the complexity within the modern media industry, and how much of an impact technology carries within journalism today. I found the various forms of media perception, modern mergers, and company developments fascinating to read about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Create study guides throughout the semester, take note of all clicker questions/their answers at the end of each lecture, take dutiful notes in order to easily study for each exam.
