COM 308 - Advanced Research Methods in Communication
REL 207 - Ritual, Symbol, & Myth
SOC 334 - Technology and Society
I want to drop a class (I'd still be full time and it's before the drop/add date). The required research class (COM 308) is a hell of a lot of work and I cannot manage the two classes with it. I don't know which one to drop though. Neither are required; they both just fill my elective requirements. I'm don't really prefer subject over the other either. The assignments for each include:
- 3 quizzes
- 7 exams
- 3 discussion boards
- 2 writing assignments (2-3 pages each)
- 6 discussion boards
- research paper (8+ pages) with presentation
- writing assignment (5-6 pages)
I don't know which of the two classes to drop. What would you pick? Why? Thanks.

The REL presentation is done online, so not nearly as nerve-wracking as in person.
Actually, all of my classes are online classes, if that makes any difference.
Whichever one I don't do now I will do in the second half of the semester because I already bought the books (don't want to risk edition/book changes if I wait) and I like both subjects. The second half I'm taking:
COM 259 - Communication in Business and the Professions
COM 312 - Communication Conflict and Negotiation
MCO 435 - Social Media
I would drop one of the second half classes to take later on (probably a COM class).
ETA: I'm a Communication major with a minor in Media Analysis.

I teach a couple of online college courses. I'm probably not the toughest instructor, and am more flexible than many--and I still fail a significant percentage of each group, largely because time management is such a challenge for online learners.
Do you know anyone who's taken either of these classes (and in these formats, with the same instructors)? Anyone with syllabi? I think I'd ask around about the classes and the instructors, to get a feel for the workload.
if it's truly a coin toss, take the one that you feel will be most interesting.
