I started out disliking this class, but this professor really helped expand my knowledge about media in the world. Projects are a majority of the class grade and they are all fairly easy. Just do what she asks. Recommend. :) Oh & you better come to class. She is somewhat strict on attendance.

A word of warning, if you turn in something even a few hours late, accidentally or not, you will get 0 credit on the basis that she does not accept any late work for any reason. This, at the same time that she takes forever to grade your work,and forever to email you back. Still waiting for a grade on a presentation turned in 3 weeks ago.

Her class is so easy and interesting. You have about one quiz every two weeks, two projecs which you SHOULD do, and one midterm and final. The midterm and final are a BREEZE, just study the previous quizzes. She gives extra redit and she is very helpful. Defenitely recommend!

Professor Munoz is amazing! Her classes are never boring, and she makes learning fun! I took her Media 10 class this spring and I loved it. Would highly recommend. I got an A but worked hard for it, several assignments but they are all crystal clear so it shouldn't be hard to get an A in this class if you do the same.

Took her online class. Online reader was a MESS. Kind of an easy grader, but takes off points points if you do not turn your work in on time. Easy homeworks, two (hard!) quiz's. Could have been an interesting class, but the material was too messy.

Sooooo easy!!! Seriously, this class was a total breeze!!! Towards the final weeks, I gave up on the readings and just wrote about things I learned in other classes and I was set. Literally impossible to get anything below an A.

Syllabus makes the class seem stricter than it is. I never got more than a C on the quizzes but I still got a B in the class. Her left-leaning opinions were quite obvious, so don't take this class if instructor neutrality is important to you.

Professor Munoz is GREAT! She gives you the materials and if you read them thoroughly you will succeed! Everything is laid out extremely clear and if you ever have a question you can call and email her. 100% take this class, the materials she chooses are really interesting too. I learned a lot and reviewed a broad range of materials. Love her!

She gave me 0 for no reason even though I did everything she asked. When I sent her email asking why, she never responded. I had never experienced any thing like this before in Orange Coast College. And I am not a lazy or bad student; my grades were always on top. I do not know why a professor like her can have a really bad grammar.

Great class overall! Fun lectures and projects, a lot of interaction between students and teacher. The quizes might seem hard at the beginning but you catch on and the exams are based on the quizes so they're super easy. She's very passionate, I strongly suggest her!

Took Pro. Munoz for Comm 1 & 10. Love her! She's passionate about teaching and dedicated to her students. 6 quizzes based off the readings from textbook. Midterm and final are same questions from the quizzes. Overall, easy class that's actually really interesting at the same time. I definitely recommend her!

She is a genuinely nice person, very accommodating to foreign students. Quizzes count for practically nothing of your final grade so stay in C-B range. Midterm, final, and projects count for everything so make sure you do them. If you stay on top of that you've got an A in the bag. And the midterm and final are a cakewalk.

Great person, moreover professor. She's very knowledgeable and kind. The structure of the class is fairly easy and fun (6 quizes, 2 exams, 1 presentation, about 2 projects). She is very helpful. The only advice I have is that you pick a good partner, because you'll have to present with them later on. Highly recommend. Oh, and the book cost me $5!

Prof Munoz class interesting but she is not supper organized. There is 1 book + PDF files every week but pdf file r some times hard to find & she doesn't make it clear in the syllabus. TD + chapter Q + Hw + 2 comments for other student posts makes your wkly grade. Also 1 chapter powerpoint presentation is assigned per group worth %100. Final got A

From an Online Class perspective, she doesn't grade quickly but is quick to take points away if you don't turn it in on time. Gives no feedback on why she took away points on assignments, except through a rather cryptic generic explanation that doesn't tell you how to get full credit. Materials online are disorganized and not clear. Comm teacher?

Not sure she's right for teaching an online class. One point of online is less paper, but she provides materials in wrong direction so you can't read them online? WTH? She also writes the most complicated instructions. They're confusing and hard to understand, coming from a Communication teacher. She doesn't understand the art of clarity.

Nice, fun, and chill teacher. SUPER EASY A! she makes the already interesting material more interesting. Attendance Mandatory (unless you email that your sick) barely take notes, read book if interested in material but not that serious because MIDTERM & FINAL ARE COPIED & PASTED FROM THE QUIZZES OVER THE SEMESTER! SO EASY. a chimp could pass :)

AMAZING. She is approachable, passionate, and actually cares about students. Got 96% without any extra credit... and she gives a LOT of E.C. chances. Study for the quizzes, and you'll ace the tests b/c she takes ACTUAL questions from the quizzes for her tests + final. One of the best teachers ive taken so far

This class is great and you will learn a lot. Pay attention to the syllabus since the due dates change toward the end of the course. To the commenter who thinks this class is "biased." What were you expecting from a class about race and gender? Everything in the course is based on facts, so whether you like the Kool-Aid or not, it's what it is.

She's a good teacher. I took her class online and I was very satisfied with her teaching style. She answers all questions quickly and she communicates very well. Some chapters require a lot of reading but you can usually get away with skimming over the extra readings and just look for the important stuff.

I took this class online. She grades easily enough, but the subject matter is very boring and there is about 60 pages to read each week. One week was over a hundred. The assignments are mostly opinion but there are about 6 of them a week. Two tests, one group project, and one individual media log.

Don't even bother going to class, she doesnt teach.Her quizzes have NOTHING to do w/ what she talks about in class.U have to read every single line in every single chapter to get an 'A' in the class. I got an 'A' by using the online website that's listed in the book.I just read the chapter summaries there.Midterm and final are exact q's from quizze

Ms. Muñoz is really anal about readings. She knows when you haven't read and she'll call you out on it. There are a lot of readings and you'll have a hard time keeping up if you disregard the assigned readings.
