    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course, COMS/JOUR 55 was amazing with Professor Snowden. He made this interesting topic fun and the coursework was light but thought-provoking. His lectures and discussions were the highlight of the course, and I highly recommend this class to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was Professor Snowden himself and his lectures/in-class discussions. He has a way of making everything more interesting than it already is and he has such passion for this subject that it makes the class exciting. Learning about the media and the development and history of it was fascinating with Snowden as my professor.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go for it. Snowden explains everything quite well so just going to lecture/discussion is almost all you need to pass this course. It is interesting, engaging, and enlightening.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    COMS 55 with has been my absolute favorite course I have taken as a college student. Molly Dugan was such an amazing professor, this class happened to be at 7:30am, which is normally really hard to motivate yourself to get to, but I did not miss this class one time. She kept the class engaged; showing PowerPoint, videos, and other visual examples that made unit of the class very clear and easy to understand. The class also followed a perfect timeline, so when it came down to exam time, it was easy to put together a study guide. I would highly recommend!

    Course highlights:

    This class reviewed the advancement of mass media since the beginning of times; starting with the printing press and ending with smartphones and social media. Although this is a requirement for communication majors, it inspired me to enroll into a second mass media class which was not required. The highlights in this course for me was really getting to see where all of the technology we love and use today started and where the ideas stemmed from. The rate media is being produced in our world today is dramatically increasing daily and will continue to do so. This course is important for everyone to take a look at even if you're not a communications major.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into this course with an open mind and willingness to learn. There are so many amazing historical facts that you will learn and be proud to present to others.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was engaging and Professor Williams explained the topic so that it made sense to everyone trying to understand. Because it was about Mass Media, and that topic is so prevalent in today's society, the Professor would make sure to relate it back to things that were happening in the world at that time, helping his students be able to apply what they learned to their daily life around them.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the history of Mass Media. It takes you from the early stages of Mass Media all the way to what's happening currently. It was interesting to see where it all stemmed from.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a fun class, but be sure to do the homework because they are easy points that will end up helping you out. The homework isn't hard, and it's basically just helping you study important terms and concepts.
