    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a music lover, I believed that I would excel in this class. This class goes over a variety of musical time periods and music styles which we discuss in class and in reports. One must fully understand the vocabulary talked about, which requires at least a small background in music. There are many students who do not have musical backgrounds so they must do lots of research on their own. The class requires a lot of memorization of the titles and artists of pieces as all of quizzes and tests have a major listening portion.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed listening to varied styles of music and learning about what the time period was like while the composer was alive. I am able to say that I understand more pieces of music and I know more about the artists.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to listen to the pieces assigned many times so that they will be able to recognize it right away. I would also say to do a lot of background information on music theory and learn the basics of music composition.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I don't feel like this is a class to take if you want to really learn the Spanish language. This class focused a lot more on the culture, which is good, but I took this class expecting to learn more of the language rather than the culture.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that if you do not read the lectures or watch the movies, you're pretty much screwed. Get on it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the textbook. Read the lectures at least three times. When watching the movies, follow along with the discussion questions in the textbook.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor although informative, does tend to show favoritism towards certain students. For example, I assisted a friend in writing her paper for the course. She received an A while I was given a B+. The next time we actually swapped papers we wrote just for a social experiment. Again she received an A for the paper I wrote and I received a B-. I attributed my grade to just his preference in students. She was a gorgeous Blonde and I am a pretty Brunette. Case closed.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn much about the Greek contributions to music; however, I did feel as though other cultures (i.e. Asian, Arabic, and African) were purposefully excluded. African American contributions were limited to just Swing music, Blues, Jazz when in actuality African Americans pioneered many other genres for example Country Rock n Roll. In all, it does pay to educate yourself along side taking this course if you want to learn about culture.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to study your materials thoroughly, be prepared to take lengthy notes, always wear your glasses (if needed) because his writing tends to be illegible at times, and most importantly WEAR A PUSH-UP BRA!
