Introduces the art of popular and contemporary songwriting. Examines three aspects of the music: the technical construction of the music itself, the societal and cultural context that produces musical style, and the resulting ideas that music expresses. Presents opportunities to analyze historical musical examples, study the craft of songwriting, and engage in hands-on work using software applications to compose and produce songs. Prerequisites: (WR 115 and RD 115) or IRW 115 and MTH 20 or equivalent placement. Audit available. (See course content and outcomes.)
