It shouldn't really be a surprise that the community college of the Live Music Capital of the World would offer classes on the commercial music industry – or that they are proposing a degree plan in it. But ACC is pretty special, considering less than 10 (nontech) schools nationwide have programs that teach audio engineering, the legal aspects of the entertainment industry, and the nuances of music publishing. And this is only one of the many possibilities Austin Community College students have, beyond the more traditional track of just building up transfer credits. ACC should be recognized for its variety of excellent, unusual classes and vocational programs that offer alternatives to the usual college fare.
