Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Downes is an incredible professor. He wants his students to succeed and is very interested in my the ethical side of PR. He will be happy to grab a coffee and discuss your concerns about maintaining your morals within an industry of "spin doctors."
We learned a kaleidoscope view of PR and its sectors. From corporate to nonprofit and government, we covered it. We also cover agency life and all the PR basics: writing to maximize readability, writing a press release, etc. My favorite project was creating your own online portfolio - it was so helpful!

Advice for students:
Do all of the readings and stay up-to-date on current events, otherwise you will be lost during lecture.
