    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ava Barnes was a great teacher! She made participating in class fun and even though it was a required course for me, I had a great time taking it!

    Course highlights:

    I am more media-literate now than I was before taking the class. I feel as though I have gained a better understanding of social media and "fake news" by taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    KEEP UP ON THE READINGS! The readings are crucial, as is attendance because a lot of material is discussed in class, as well as information that might not be in the text.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    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.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    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!
