    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jansma explains the material very well and her lectures are never boring. She is very approachable and helpful. During office hours, she will sit with you one on one and give you as much time you need to ensure all of your questions are answered. Prof. Jansma outlines exactly what is required for the paper and what material is on the midterm and final.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning the types of theories. They are all very applicable to everyday life and it was very interesting to learn the different aspects of each theory. The presentations during class also allowed me to learn about the theories through the different perspectives of my fellow classmates.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait until the midterm or final to go over your notes or do the reading. Keep up with the reading and go over your lecture notes every night to avoid cramming. You will also do a lot better on the exams if you study this way. Additionally, get started on the paper early, allowing you time to go to both your TA and Prof. Jansma's office hours for feedback, as well last minute edits.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although, there are quite a bit of theories and theorist philosophies to absorb, the data is applicable in everyday life. I believe as a North American society, we are not the best communicators. If I had any doubt of the prior mentioned hypothesis before enrolling in Comm89 class, those doubts no longer exist. Comm89 touches on interpersonal communication, small group communication, organizational communication, and intercultural communication, it is a class that most of us, in North American society, should take to become much better at doing something we cannot do without – communicate.

    Course highlights:

    When I presented a lecture topic, “Social Penetration Theory.” It was only a 15-minute presentation, but it gave me a chance to teach fellow students.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Two items...stay on top of the required reading(s) and improve your time-management skills
