The professor has an annoying soporific voice, and like the person above said, does not know how to give an engaging or interesting lecture. The course reader required for this class is absolutely unnecessary - neither the midterm nor the final had ANY material from the course reader. He assigns an obscene amount of reading, but does not test any of it. He seems very nervous and defensive all the time, but if you talk to him one-on-one, he's pretty nice. Although he treats the class as a whole as a kindergarten class (he raises his voice and shouts, "No talking!" and makes his TA's stand guard by the side of the aisles), he respects you when you talk to him one-on-one. All in all, the material was interesting, but the professor? Not so much. The class isn't that hard as long as you go to lecture and review the lecture material (a lot of memorization though).

I love both music and media, so I thought this would be the perfect GE for me! I couldn't have been more wrong. Taylor speaks in a monotone voice, and lectures were very boring. He barely wrote anything on his slides, so you would have to pay attention to what he said, even thought most of it wasn't important. Exams were unnecessarily hard, and we got marked down for not using specific words, even if we showed that we understood the concept clearly. Essays were graded unfairly in the same way. Definitely do not take this class as a GE.
