Additional Information

Music pervades many mass-mediated cultural forms and is consumed both actively and passively by millions of people on a daily basis. In this course we begin by considering the work of key cultural and media theorists after which we explore both how we consume music within a range of media (film, television, radio, internet), and where we consume it (homes, elevators, grocery stores, gyms). This course is designed to help educators facilitate their students when thinking critically about the functions and effects of music in everyday environments.
