Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Something that is really important for any person is to understand the world around them--this includes the media. I would recommend this course not only because the professor is incredible, but because it gives insight into how the media works and what it strives to do.
I wish I could remember specifics about this course, but I do remember that we learned a lot of different theories. We talked about how the media showcases different ages, genders, sexualities, races, etc.. We talked about how "FRIENDS", the popular TV show, rarely showcased people of color. It was so much fun to rip apart the media and ask critical questions like, "Why do they do this? What does this mean for me?"

Advice for students:
Do the readings! It is so important, especially with Dr. C, to keep up with your readings. Also, make sure you're taking notes. She lets you use your notes most of the time for quizzes! She seems a little difficult at first, but honestly, you just have to do your work and be honest. She appreciates that.
