    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an engaging course and Spence is an amazing professor! This course made me want to be a communications major. I think it is an excellent course regardless of your major because it helps you to understand people and teaches you essential skills that are useful to everyone in life.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about how people interact with one another and the way we perceive each other. It was really interesting learning about things that were so applicable to every day and ways of interacting and understanding others that improve relationships.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a very fun classroom setting but you also need to take the work seriously, Spence expects you to put forward some of your best work and full effort. Also, take his advice in studying for his exams and start a week early, creating a study guide and studying off that out loud.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you haven't decided on your major and are considering communication. This is one of the foundation classes for the major and even if it turns out that you communication isn't for you, you have also taken a course that covers a general education requirement. Professor Spencer is a professor like no other. He is passionate and he gets to know you and you get to know him. This course and this professor are two of the main reasons I decided to be Communication Studies Major.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were learning different communication theories and seeing how they are in our everyday life, but we have different ways of explaining them. I learned to think differently and see how different ages have different ways of communicating. Another highlight were the constant discussions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate and do the reading every week. Don't skip this class because much of what is on the exams is not only in the text, but also based off what is said and discussed in class. Take good notes, have study groups, and don't be afraid to go to the Professors Office because it shows you care and that you are truly trying to improve in the class and as a student.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you how communication in our society and media can be applied to our everyday lives.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was learning about how media affects our communication - Dr. Spencer showed us advertisements and other sources of media that we would see all the time, and taught us what it communicated and why it is important to us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is meant to be a Communication Studies pre-requisite course but more students should take it because students need to realize how important communication is and how important applications of communication are to our daily lives.
