    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would really recommend taking this course with Dr. Dougan because he will keep you engaged with a subject that, for some people, isn't necessarily the highlight of their recording industry journey. He is funny, insightful, and able to give plenty of necessary background info to the topics discussed on different aspects of the history of the recording industry.

    Course highlights:

    I felt that I got a much, much greater appreciation of the history of the recording industry. As a recording industry major, it is ironic that I knew next to nothing about much of the artists and events that really shaped the music industry, and I went into the class expecting to be just as apathetic on the subject since it would cover mostly popular forms of music (not my greatest love as a lover of orchestral soundtracks for games and movies). But I quickly gained a much greater knowledge and love for the different styles of music and the events that helped shape them, leading into a desire to research this stuff even more on my own part.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely recommend actually doing your reading for this course (seems self-explanatory, but this is one of those classes you actually will need to do some reading to do fairly well on the test). I would also go to the professor directly to ask what to expect on the test. The study guides are extremely thorough, but there were still a number of things I simply did not think would be on the test that ended up showing up (some nitpicky stuff like all the band members names of a particular group and what they may be known for beyond just being a part of that band).

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was by far the most interesting course I have taken so far. The material was what I enjoy learning about most and the professor kept it interesting and relatable. He also made it light hearted and even would include cool personal stories within the lectures.

    Course highlights:

    We studied the history of American popular music and its influences. We learned everything from the black minstrelsy period to 2000s digital technology in the music industry. My favorite lessons in the class were 80s underground rock and 80s/90s grunge.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to study in depth and ahead of time for the tests because they are difficult and long. Do the reading throughout the weeks before tests because there will be questions from the book on there.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend it because there is a lot to learn about our entertainment industry and how it became what it is today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the lectures. You can definitely tell that the professor was passionate about what he was teaching, whether or not we were interested in learning it or not.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put in around 9-11 hours of work into this course. To understand and to do well on the exams, It's essential that you take the initiative to read beyond the notes/lectures.
