    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am a non-music major and see pros and cons to this course. It fulfills a 1C requirement & a diversity requirement as well. It is also very interesting, however the exams are quite difficult - all fill in the blank with 6 paragraph FR & a listening portion, no word bank.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning the music from Polynesia because I love the islands. We also learned about music from India, Latin America, China, Africa and more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY STUDY STUDY. It is key to passing the midterm and the final. For someone who is a non-music major like me, it was more difficult to learn the 50+ terms we received compared to the music majors in the class. Listen to all the songs as well - on the exam you need to know the title & the region it comes from. Only 4 out of the 15 songs given will be played. Also do well on the projects, be very detailed and use lots of vocabulary learned in class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for both music majors and non-music majors. The material covered is focused on Music appreciation and history.

    Course highlights:

    For this course we were graded on a few projects and tests. You are able to pick which project you wanted to complete based off of a few choices to find which interested you the most.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the readings and vocabulary terms. I recommend using Quizlet, or another website that helps with memorizing vocabulary terms and generating practice quizzes and tests to keep up with the terms used on the tests.
