    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the course and how I was able to look at media outlets at a more critical lens. My professor was very open to student opinions and getting to know her students, and furthering their learning.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed our section on newspapers and the New York Times because we learned how much newspapers were going out of business, but articles coming from a newspaper are important to keep, because journalists are working for the people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise the students to reread chapters that are assigned for upcoming tests. I would also recommend students write down main points that other students say, because she adds in questions about things that are said in the lectures only on quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was engaging in a way that forced you to reconsider your own schemas. Brad is passionate about the topic and willing to help his students. There is a LOT of reading in the course, but if you take the time to actually read everything, you can easily get an A.

    Course highlights:

    The course challenged our current media system and how it plays a role in government via lobbying. Most importantly, I found that it really challenged my understanding of bias in the news and how to consume media critically.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't like reading or you are just looking for an easy A without any effort, then don't take it. However, if you don't mind reading articles and thinking critically, please take it; it is fascinating and so helpful to know.
