    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class with this professor because he keeps your interest. By randomly calling on students it keeps you engaged and by using his sense of humor he can crack jokes while also telling you what to do wrong and how to fix it more the next assignment.

    Course highlights:

    In this course your writing skills are taken to a level I didn't know was possible. The expectations are high and there is no room for error. This course taught me to triple check my work, my sources of information and resources. This course has made me realize the potential I have on my writing and the influence I can make with a well written piece.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this course if you are sensitive to harsh feedback. Expect to receive at least one F on a paper, maybe more. Also expect to have a writing assignment due at the end of every class period. If you are looking to improve your journalism skills, this course will prepare you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She mumbles during lecture, sit close. Ask for more time if you need to finish the in class writing. She's a hard ass when it comes to grading and set in her old school ways. Honestly, i'd drop her class and take it with someone else if you can. If not, then work as hard as you possibly can and hope for the best.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what a joke Murrow college is. They've set these ridiculous hoops that are nothing like the industry. If you fail Com300 don't freak out. You'll still be able to be a journalist. Com300 is made out to be harder than it should be. The rest of your writing classes in com are more realistic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text. Use the style book and pay attention to everything.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone in the Communication field like myself because it was the most challenging course I ever took in school. The class will adequetly prepare students for the workforce and for their remaining college courses. It is difficult, but it will help students learn the importance of details and allow them to take a wide variety of upper-level Communication courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was, for me, the instructor Roberta Kelly. She was a very tough grader but clearly wanted us all to learn and be successful, not just in the class, but in the workforce. I learned to eliminate filler words in sentences and pay much closer attention to detail. As someone who got used to writing very long sentences and paragraphs in essays, I was challenged to write page-long articles with paragraphs of one or two sentences. I also learned to pay more attention to detail. In the beginning of the course, I missed numerous details and made very minor mistakes that cost me letter grades. By the end of the semester, I was able to catch those minor errors before they hurt me and managed to pass a course that a large fraction of students do not pass on their first try. I learned a lot and became significantly better with detail-oriented tasks.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be on your game, all the time. Always show up to class early and read the textbook outside of class. Pay complete attention during class because all of your work will be done during class periods. DO NOT MISS CLASS. When writing essays (which you will write in class) make sure not to waste time, and do double or triple check your work BEFORE you submit it. Your work will be treated as though it is being typed up in a real news room and a minor name error could fail your paper. Anyone can pass the class - just make sure you show up to every class, pay extra attention and double-check!
