In-depth investigation of social networks, digital platforms, and online marketing for the live entertainment and sport industries.
This course examines cutting edge research involving today’s most popular social media platforms. The course employs simple yet powerful exercises to develop understanding of theory and applications of social dynamics and Web-based marketing, and will represent one of the few courses offered on the USC campus solely devoted to the study of social media platforms and new media technologies. The presence of this course in the university’s curriculum has significant implications for USC faculty and students alike. A recent study conducted among college graduates revealed the U.S. higher education system is failing to offer students the strategic and tactical social media training needed to succeed in the modern workplace (Fortune, 2012). This course fulfills degree requirements for majors and minors in the Department of Sport and Entertainment Management (SPTE) by serving as a course elective for both undergraduate and graduate students. Moreover, this course also fulfills the requirements for other USC programs as an outside electives course.

SPTE 655 - INDEV Committee Comments
August 26, 2016
10. I would suggest that the titles in the Syllabus not be in all capital letters. This is considered 'shouting' according to Netiquette guidelines.
11. Other than the questions already in the system I would like to see the grading system distributed uniformly. Example B+ at 87% to 89% is not even with B at 80% to 86%.
12. Proposer Should attend our next INDEV Committee meeting.
ISincerely / Don Jordan, Chair InDEV 2016-2017
Please send to Graduate Council for Approval.
Please attend to the following comments:
This course is intended for both undergraduates and graduate students, so, is appropriately in front of this committee. I have seen it before and commented on expectations when it was in front of the INDEV committee--sort of surprised it got past them. Comments:
Re-Label Learning Outcomes
A separate learning outcome (at least one) tied to the additional task assigned to graduate students will need to be added (the statement to see assessment is insufficient).
Is the final project due 12.5 or 12.2? Both dates are indicated. Earlier is better to increase probability that the instructor will be able to submit all grades before students are assigned an NR.
DESPITE THE ABOVE, YOUR PROPOSAL HAS BEEN MOVED FORWARD TO THE FACULTY SENATE FOR APPROVAL.
