Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Media and Society is a course that will guide you in understanding the evolution of techonolgy within the timeline of journalism. This study focuses on the most influential people, companies, and significant events that contributed to the productivity of American journalism. This class will also give insight on how society's views and opinions changed with and about the media.
Though the course as a whole was excellent, the highlights, in my opinion, were the current news stories we would discuss within every course. Also, Professor Buckman allowed CMCN 170 students to earn bonus points by attending a movie screening of Orson Welles' Citizen Kane. I absolutely loved the exciting learning environment as well! Every class period was so refreshing!

Advice for students:
My advice to potential CMCN 170 students is to WRITE your notes. Put away all electronic devices to obtain, as Professor Buckman would say, the "bitter experience" of note taking. Read the assigned chapters and study the notes you take. Form study groups with productive scholars who are willing to work. Finally, have an endless amount of optimism---you won't regret it!
