    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although the media/communications department can seem hectic and unorganized at times, the practical knowledge gained is well worth the mild chaos. Often, media students report feeling as though they are not learning anything, only to move on to the next year and demonstrate skills they didn't know they had. This course is effective because students are thrown into real-world situations and forced to learn through doing. Overall, this course provides an excellent platform for aspiring journalists and filmmakers to experiment with diverse ideas and find their voice.

    Course highlights:

    This course focused on teaching students practical information that can be used in the film or broadcast news industry. The department is headed by an extremely knowledgeable and experienced member of the news industry, who understands that textbook teachings rarely translate smoothly into practical skills when it comes to such a subjective field. Students learn how to conduct a newscast as well as produce a film, both almost exclusively through hands-on experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As the teachers in the department will tell you, a deadline is a deadline. Whether you are putting together a news package or editing a film, give yourself more time than you think you need. Also, be prepared for writing. Many people don't understand the difficulty of writing in a broadcast format, or the amount of pre-production writing that goes into even a five-minute film. Lastly, let the chaos happen. It will feel at times like you have no idea what is going on, or like your teacher has lost their mind entirely, but I assure you, the times when you feel this way are the times when you are learning the most. Be patient with the media teachers, they do, in fact, know a lot of things that you don't yet.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class because it gave students the freedom to work on their own films, which helped everyone develop their own style. It gave students the chance to fail and learn from their mistakes.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class would be getting to see the final product of the film that I produced by myself. During the filming process, I learned that whatever can go wrong, definitely will go wrong. I learned what works and what doesn't while filming and editing.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have a passion for storytelling, this is the course for you! There are so many different personalities in media, and so many jobs to fill that you are guaranteed to fit at least on position.
