    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was the highlight of my semester! The professor was engaging and fun and she felt like she was a member of the class rather than an adult lecturing at us. She is friendly and warm and presents the information in a way where I feel comfortable asking questions or giving my opinion. The students in class were all senior Communications majors so I felt like we all shared a boned and I never felt uncomfortable speaking to them or voicing my thoughts in class. It was a very safe environment that I always looked forward to engaging with.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the content. McDonnell teaches her courses with a feminist perspective which I find to be highly information and admirable, I have never taken a course before my time at Emmanuel that taught us anything more than the basics of early feminism. The lectures talked about very current issues and focused on texts and subjects that directly related to my life. The content wasn't all just modern media because the professor assigned scholarly readings that were rooted in media and feminist theory and then she connected what we learned from these texts to the content of the lectures. I was always excited to come to class and see what she had in store for us!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and don't be afraid to speak up! Participation is encouraged and because this class is a discussion based format it only works when students are willing to share their opinions and ask questions. I know at first it was a little awkward raising my hand and asking questions, but the professor makes it very easy to speak by asking questions about the texts that are very tempting to answer because she incorporates our personal experiences into the lesson.
