    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the class pertains to the ways that mass media and communication mediums have an influence on our culture and society. Because we are as students and as people are subject to the media daily, whether it be through social media, the newspaper, or television, I think it is a very intriguing topic to study.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights were learning about the history of different mediums, such as the television, radio, telegraph, satellite, and the innovative minds behind these great technologies. I have always marveled at how technology has progression even in just the past twenty years, so I found it very interesting to examine the timeline of technologies pretty much throughout history. Furthermore, Dr. Malin did a fantastic job of showing videos, documentaries, and news clips that illustrated the different topics we learned, such as methods that advertisers use to try to persuade consumers to choose their products.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy it and be present! I think that it is easily the most interesting course I have taken at Pitt and as long as you are attentive in lecture and recitation and study well for the multiple choice exams, you should do well. There are two big writing assignments but you are given plenty of time and as long as you attend the recitations you should be able to pace yourself well. Plus the assignments are a perfect combo of clear instructions mixed with leeway to write about what interests you the most, so most students actually enjoy them.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely heavy in regards to vocabulary. Don't slack off during class, make sure you listen attentively and even pay attention/write down what he says. Many vocab definitions are not listed in his slides online, so it is important to listen and take good notes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the history of radio, television, newspapers, etc. which is important for my major. This information is pretty basic, but it is interesting and can show how far this world has come in regards to technology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard for the midterm and final! Make sure you know the meaning of vocabulary terms. It will also help to know what person is associated with that specific term.
