Professor Dale is an amazing professor! pretty straight forward teaching technique, clarifies where he needs to, gives helpful study guides for midterms and exams and tries his best to make course material engaging knowing well enough that the material can be quite a drag. He really does strive for student success and although it may seem like a lot of work at first glance, the assigned materials and homework help in studying for the midterm and final exam. One thing to take note of is that he really does know every one of his students by their first names so if you're not putting in the work, he'll know!

Professor Dale is easily one of the best professors in the COMM department- take him if you have the chance! Like the other person said, the class is called actually Science of Language, basically you're studying a lot of different aspects of language (processing, language use, tools for language analysis, etc.). He constantly relates the material to how you can apply it for your career (mass media, entertainment, research, etc.), so it never feels like you're learning something that you'll never use. No exams, just short online quizzes most weeks (if you go to lecture and pay attention/take some notes they should be pretty easy), two labs and a final project (basically you just expand on a lab or use one or more of the language tools to create a bigger study). For the final project, he tells you to make it based on an industry/topic/etc. you're interested in so that you can use it for a career, grad school, etc. portfolio, so it's definitely to your benefit to put a lot of effort into it. He genuinely wants everyone to do well in his class and after graduating, I really can't recommend him enough!
