Fall 2018 MSC IN CIVILIZATION: MSC 1003 (Baruch) Prof. Eliav Kohl Eliav.Kohl @baruch.cuny.edu INTRODUCTION What this course promises you: Throughout this semester you will learn about music, the craft of music and its place in culture. You will see how it is affected by war and commerce, by revolution and by technology. You will learn about its interaction and relationship with art, architecture, and literature of successive time periods. COURSE INFORMATION This course has three major objectives: 1) to be able to listen to music and analyze its sounds. 2) to know something about how musical style develops. 3) to be able to distinguish between main musical genres, styles, and time periods. Test information: There are five quizzes that will be given during the semester. Each one will last about 20 to 25 minutes. The dates of all quizzes are listed below. Quizzes cannot be made up for. Listening journal: Every week you will have to fill out and submit a short “listening journal.” You will have to listen to a minimum of 15 minutes of music written between the years 1000 and 1900 and write about your listening experience. A list of composers and their seminal works will be offered. However, you are free to choose any other piece that does not appear on the list. Each entry will be graded complete/incomplete. You are required to submit one entry every week at the beginning of our first lesson (13 total). Any missing entry will result in lowering your final grade. Note: the listening journals are to be submitted to my mail ( Eliav.Kohl @baruch.cuny.edu ) with the title “listening journal”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
