Professor Nagle is awesome. Lecture is once a week for 3 hours. He typically lectured for an hour then brought in a guest to speak with us. Guests were from all over the entertainment industry and were happy to answer our questions.

The only negative to the class is that 50% of the grade is the midterm, a research paper on the history of a network that he assigns. He will go out of his way to help you find all of the information you need, including putting you in contact with people who work at that network for a phone interview if need be. He will also read your paper and provide feedback if you submit it to him early enough. It's just a matter of having a group that is punctual and gets the paper done early enough.

30% of the grade is attendance. Just show up and sign in

The last 20% is the final, part of which is a short group paper on a show from the network you researched. The other part is an in class essay based on the reading he assigned.

It's an easy class and you'll learn a lot about the entertainment industry. If you're interested in an entertainment career, take this class.
