Think of a piece of music that has helped you through a trying or joyful time. You probably identify with the music—it speaks to you, gives voice to your emotions, or reminds you of something in your past. You may develop a personal relationship with a piece of music or a song, but you are not the only one listening to it. Its popularity brought the piece of music to your attention in the first place. You may not think about the lyrics or the catchy tune, or the fact that it is a popular song. You may not even understand the message the song or its lyrics are conveying.

I love pop culture. I love to be inside of it, and step outside and look back in.
—Nick Rhodes, member of the band Duran Duran
In Weeks 1–4 of this course, you will work on assignments that contribute to your Final Project, which is due in Week 5. As in the quote from Nick Rhodes above, you will be inside of pop culture, step outside of it, and then look back in as you closely analyze a single issue across multiple pop culture artifacts.
Submit your completed Final Project Worksheet. Be sure to keep a copy and refer to it throughout this course.
