    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in music and analyzing it, this would be great for you. I have always loved music so this was a great class to participate in. It is a great first-semester class.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest things for me is Klepacki gives you all materials needed for the course(textbook) in a pdf form and easy to follow pre-recorded lectures. You learn the history of music. Where it started and how today's music came to be. There is quite a bit of discussing with fellow classmates about subjects in this course. Also, you are given several pieces throughout the course and are instructed to analyze them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A main part of the class was through communication and bouncing ideas off of other classmates. be sure to watch the lectures and read the text to get the best understanding of the course materials.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a super easy course that is a great way to get your humanities credit and bang out 2000 words of the writing requirement. Dr. Hodges is very sweet and has a good sense of humor. She split the word requirement into four 500 word essays instead of one 2000 word essay which really made the course less of a burden. It also requires no musical experience to take this course.

    Course highlights:

    The information we learned was actually really fascinating. You get to learn how music itself has changed over the centuries and how it influences society. Also almost every Friday we had a guest performer come to play something. Whether that was a student in the class performing for extra credit or a visitor to the University, it was really nice to sit and enjoy a performance for the majority of the class on Friday.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The quizzes and papers are extremely easy, but the exams are a little bit more on the difficult side. You have to be able to recognize different pieces of music and know what the name of the piece is as well as the composer. You must also know the country of origin, religious affiliation, and identify what instruments you hear for the world music pieces. The last of the questions are open-ended so make sure you study the chapters, that way you can word dump on the exam. The more you write, the higher chance you'll get a better score. Other than that this is a really low-stress class and can be really fun if you like music. Dr. Hodges also offers a lot of extra credit opportunities. From attending concerts to performing in front of the class, take as many as you can in order to have a nice buffer for your grade.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course opens your eyes to the extent by which music plays into culture. Not only is it very interesting, but you feel more well-informed after learning of the impacts of music on an international level.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the Music and Film unit where we delved into the importance of music in a movie. I learned of the ways that the musical score evolved gradually into the famous soundtracks of the films that we are familiar with in the present. I also found that familiarizing myself with the history of how certain genres of music came to be made the music in the films that I watch now make more sense on a deeper perspective.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes on the lectures done in class and don't look upon it merely as a course requirement. It's definitely one of the courses offered that can be enjoyable if you allow it to be.
