Pretty easy, overall.
This course is great and easy to follow. The core of the class is media avenues (from books to television to movies to music) and how they affect our world view. We also study the history of these mediums and the important key players in mass media in the past and the present.
I learned about the origin of the magazine (France!), how radio really took off in America (it was so popular that the government had to step in to regulate it), and the basis of journalism principles.

Advice for students:
Attend every lecture (exam questions come from his lecture notes), do the readings and engage in classroom discussions. Speak up if you don't understand a concept and study with flash cards!
