This College Junior Also Teaches Rice University's Hip-Hop History Class

Daniel Koh, a Rice University junior, teaches a class there called “The History of Hip Hop.”

The university has a process for students who are interested in teaching their own classes; Koh learned about it during his freshman year from a fellow student who taught a class about the television show “Survivor.”

“[The university] let me know about the process to teach my own, which was very simple and very intuitive – that’s how it all began,” Koh says.

He chose hip-hop because it was something he developed a passion for once he came to Rice.

“I wanted to create a class where even if you didn’t know a lot about the genre, that you would be able to get a lot of benefit from the course, and be able to meet a lot of really cool people and discuss music together,” Koh says.

Tuition at Rice University is nearly $45,000 a year or the equivalent of $1,500 a semester hour. The article does not mention whether students have to pay a separate fee for the class, whether credits are earned, or if the class is shown on the official transcript.
