    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For those seeking a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts, this is a required course, but why I recommend this course is due to Professor Sears. She is an excellent communicator, compassionate, and genuinely wants to see her students excel. On more than one occasion, I found myself pressed hard to meet deadlines, (often by a matter of minutes) where I was compelled to reach out and ask for an extension. Twice, Professor Sears allowed me to receive full credit for an assignment that had missed the deadline. Granted it was a matter of minutes, but I've had experiences whereas other instructors simply don't care. I am forever grateful for her for being so pliable, understanding, and kindhearted when it would have been total justified for her to not show grace to me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course, in my opinion, were the case studies. They were easily the most interesting and real life applicable studies I’ve ever had to read in a course. There were two separate studies that really allowed you to use the material that was being discussed to dissect the errors of major corporate blunders. The first case study came at timed impeccably! It was based on the lack of organizational communication that led to the Deep Water Horizon debacle in the Gulf of Mexico. During the week of our assignment, a major motion picture starring Mark Walberg was released based on this very event. I found that very exhilarating. The second case study was on the Peanut Cooperation of America and their salmonella outbreak that affected millions. The way these assignments correlated so well with the subject matter really allowed me to articulate what I had learned, and analyze a real world scenario.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be aware of the due dates; this class has plenty of weeks where the assignments are the same. This can lull you to sleep, and pull you away from checking the syllabus regularly. The weekly assignment and the required reading are often the only items on your agenda. However, this can make you fall into a routine. There are several weeks where you have your weekly assignment along with essays, and group discussion as well. Don't forget the discussions, they can be the difference between an A+ and a B.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was very easy as long as you did the work, paid attention, and worked together.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the discussions in class. The final project was also pretty fun. I learned how to communicate when you're a leader.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and participate in class discussions.
