COMM 4370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Two film analysis & a take home final. You will write the entire semester, however, the internet is very helpful & the books he assigns will help a lot with the topics you must explain in each analysis. If you do not procrastinate and put in a little effort, this class should be an easy A. Attendance not mandatory. I personally enjoyed his class.

comm4370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

take him EASY A! attendance not mandatory! does not take attendance...watched movies every class. you have to turn in 6 film analyses (you can seriously lookup film reviews online to do this instead of going to class) and then there was a take home final...you cannot fail this class if you tried.

COMM4375 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

We watched documentaries every class. Attendance not mandatory. You have 2 take home tests and 1 case analysis. Case analysis should be 15-25 pgs. Take home tests are 2-3 ?'s and should answer 1000 words each ?. Use critical thinking,and write more if possible. Not difficult, but be prepared to answer thoroughly and plan enough time for papers.

He doesn't go over the book info in class because he says he wants to treat the students as adults, which is pretty cool. The workload isn't bad. For the papers and the exams all you have to do is prove to have knowledge of the material, (but he hates when people copy from the book) have their own opinions and support them. Use outside sources!

Very passionate about his class. Each lecture is a documentary about propaganda, most of them very interesting. Two take home essay exams and a Case Study. Emphasis on crtical thinking. The writing may seem hard at first, but if you prepare for them, then they are not as hard. Set minimum of pages, but going above that will show your thoughts.
