Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend taking this course even if you aren't planning on pursuing a journalism career. You learn about the different styles of writing and how to interview others. The knowledge I gained in this course has helped me tremendously in my current position today as a marketing assistant.
The most valuable skill I learned from this course was my ability to interview others. You will learn what kind of questions to ask that will induce the most interesting answers and how to keep an interview running smoothly. The information you gather is your basis for writing feature stories.

Advice for students:
Take this course with an open mind as it truly allows you to step out of your comfort zone. Don't be shy when approaching people for interviews, most times, people are very helpful and will do their best to relay as much information as they can to you.
