Cleveland State To Offer New Recording Industry Class This Fall

Friday, August 17, 2018

Cleveland State Community College will be offering a new class this fall, RIM 2000 History of the Recording Industry. This class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-10:20 a.m. and as the title suggests, students will study the recording industry from its beginning in the late 19th century to the modern day. 

The class will be taught by Stephen Brannen who has his degree in Recording Industry Management from Middle Tennessee State University, where this class is designed to transfer. There is also a plan to offer other recording industry classes at CSCC in future semesters—Survey of the Recording Industry and Audio Fundamentals. All will be three-hour courses.  

Mr. Brannen said, “I started teaching at Cleveland State in 2015, but even prior to that, the administration in the Humanities Department had been looking into the possibility of having some sort of recording technology, audio engineering or audio technology classes. They decided it would be good to provide a transfer pathway into MTSU’s Recording Industry Program. Once I heard that, I took it and ran with it since that is what my degree is. I wanted to make sure we had some of the courses that have to be taken in the first two years to achieve what they call candidacy into the program. 

“I’m really excited that Cleveland State is offering this class.  I don’t think that there have been any other type of Tennessee Transfer Pathways going into this program like this one. The classes are going to be modeled almost exactly like MTSU. I’m even going to use the same textbooks and give them the same as what they would have gotten if they had gone to MTSU…it just made sense to offer these classes here, so that students will be able to take advantage of the Tennessee Promise.”

According to Mr. Brannen, students will now be able to take their core general education classes at CSCC, as well as these recommended individual classes that are necessary for candidacy into the MTSU program. Then, they can transfer to MTSU as a junior and focus on the recommended classes for the next two years. 

For more information on the History of the Recording Industry class, call 472-7141, ext. 230 or email Mr. Brannen at sbrannen@clevelandstatecc.edu. The last day to register for the fall semester is Thursday and classes begin Monday, Aug. 27.
