    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hicks takes every students goal to his own interest. He explains every aspect of journalism and teaches his students beyond the world of journalism. Not only is he an excellent professor, his humor is what keeps the class going so we don't think of his class as just "another class", but a class where we look forward to going to.

    Course highlights:

    I gained many strategies that I can not only apply to my world within journalism, but in my life in general. Hicks would give us scenarios that would challenge his students, but towards the end we would be able to master every situation a journalist would come across to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For Hicks's class, I recommend investing a lot of energy into listening to him very closely in his lectures. On the articles, choose a subject that interests you the most and he will appreciate your passion for that.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to anyone who wants to pursue a career in journalism because although it was tough, it broke down everything you needed to know about writing articles. It is the first course required for a journalism major, so it is basic, but also confusing because it was all very new to me. Even if you are not a journalism major I believe this class with teach critical thinking skills that could be used in any life situation.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of critical thinking skills that I can now use in not only writing articles, but also in my daily life. Also, I learned how to work hard on a story and take constructive criticism. The course also taught me the law side of journalism such as libel laws. This was necessary because if you want to further your career in journalism, you need to know what rights you get as a citizen. This class was an overall great learning experience and I would not be the journalist I am today without it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell a student considering this course to be willing to be in hard work. Also, I would tell them to be ready to take any criticism the professor gives and learn form it rather than being upset by it. The harder you work in this course, the more you will benefit from it.
