    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very simple and straightforward class. It's online so you can, for the most part, do things on your own time. It is a lot of reading but the book is interesting enough, and the required extra reading about issues in politics and media is pretty necessary these days. It's also a good class because it's just quizzes and exams, nothing else like essays or group projects (well I personally don't like papers and projects but someone else might).

    Course highlights:

    The class is pretty static; everything's the same each chapter so I can't say there were any highlights. But I learned so much about the history of media in the United States. I especially enjoyed learning about the history of film and television. You'll also get to learn about radio, the internet, and everything else in between.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book! Don't think that just looking at the lecture is enough. It is for some chapters but not for others, so just to be safe keep the book handy. Use study groups for the big tests too. Most of the answers to the tests are online, so use those as a guide, but be warned some of them are wrong. And most importantly, don't wait until 30 minutes before the deadline to start a quiz, it may be tempting because they're only 20 questions, but you'll be spending a lot of time flipping through the book and googling answers.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class because I really do enjoy online classes and this was overall and easy class. There are kind of a lot of assignments and discussion but if you just do them on time you will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    This class was easy and I liked the knowledge I learned especially since this is a course that is for my major. If you just read the online readings this will deff be an easy A.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep up with your assignments because if you don't you could fall behind. Make sure also to do the weekly readings to understand the material better and succeed on the quizzes and final exams.
