    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although Reporting is one of the most difficult courses at UF, I strongly encourage all communications majors to take it. For journalism, public relations and telecommunications majors the course is required, but I encourage advertising students to take it, as well. My best advice would be to take it during the summer, or in a semester in which you don't have to take three or four more classes. This course requires a huge workload and so it's important to have enough time to dedicate to this class. Don't miss lecture because what the professor teaches is what he asks in the test and when it comes to outside stories, my best advice would be to start working on those as soon as you get your topic approved. For instance, I had lab Wednesdays nights and on Thursday morning, I was already emailing sources for interviews. More tips for this class include: to read the newspaper each day, study AP style and to believe in yourself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the writing style of communication majors. I can confidently say that I now know how to write following AP Style guidelines.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study AP Style, read the newspaper and don't leave your stories for the last minute.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course, but it is a very rigorous course. You must truly prepare weekly for this.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot when it came to grammar and AP style.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get started as early as possible and make sure you ask for help from your TA and professor.
