Editor Ardea Eichner speaks with Director of Popular Music and Performing Arts Bob Santelli and Contemporary Music and Research Coordinator Dana Reason, who is also associated with the popular music studies program, about the emerging minor.

Topics covered include the application of the popular music studies minor in tandem with various majors, the importance of music in culture, and the value of music studies to aspiring artists. What does the history of music in America have to do with students and creatives, and why should we be paying attention to what others have created?

Whether you play music, direct music videos, write song lyrics, design album art, or create work that has nothing to do with music, if you're an OSU student we want to feature you in Prism! The deadline for the chance to be featured in the 2019-2020 edition of Prism is November 22, 2019. So head over to to share your work with the world!
