    Pilar Reyes completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    This is a course for people interested in learning about authority, how media influences our believes; how to avoid confirmation bias and how to check facts, among other concepts. It's a short course for busy people. The recommended strategies and readings are useful and very interesting.
