CRW CREATIVE WRITING

CRW-384 INTRODUCTION TO WRITING POETRY
This introductory creative writing workshop is devoted to the writing and revising of poems.

Students will complete a final portfolio of poetry to be submitted at the end of term.

ECO ECONOMICS

ECO-113 PRINCIPLES OF MICROECONOMICS
This course introduces economic analysis of household, business, and government choices in societies limited by scarce resources. Rational choice provides the foundation for understanding economic incentives facing consumers and producers. Supply and demand models illustrate the role of prices in determining resource allocation. Topics include economic efficiency, productivity, opportunity cost, marginal analysis, profit maximization, and international trade. In addition, the course introduces theories of economic performance under alternative market structures (e.g. competition vs. monopoly), market failure, and the role of the government in the economy. No prerequisites.

FRN FRENCH

FRN-101 ELEMENTARY FRENCH I
This course is intended for students who have no previous knowledge of French. The instruction is planned to enable students to read ordinary French prose, to understand simple spoken French and to begin developing a fairly correct pronunciation. Reading and oral drill constitute a large part of the work of this course. A careful study of the essentials of grammar and syntax is included with the reading. Acquisition of a basic vocabulary is of primary importance. Classroom audio-lingual practice can be supplemented by audiotaped material in Media Services, located in the library.

HST HISTORY

HST-110 WORLD CIVILIZATION I
This course surveys the most important developments, issues, accomplishments and problems of World civilizations, provides an introduction to the study of African, Asian, European, Islamic, Native American, and Latin American civilizations, and discusses the relationships among these civilizations to the eighteenth century.

ITL ITALIAN

ITL-101 ELEMENTARY ITALIAN I
This course is designed for those students who are beginning the study of Italian. This course includes the essentials of grammar, vocabulary building and composition, together with the reading of easy selections in prose and verse. Classroom audio-lingual practice can be supplemented by audio-taped material in Media Services, located in the library.

ITL-201 INTERMEDIATE ITALIAN I
After a rapid review of the essentials of grammar, students are introduced to an appreciation of the various forms of literary expression in prose and verse. Classroom audio-lingual practice can be supplemented by audio-taped material in Media Services, located in the library. Prerequisite: ITL 102 or two or three years of high-school Italian.

ITL-301 INTERMEDIATE CONVERSATION & COMPOSITION I
Emphasis on correct expression and vocabulary development. Audio-visual work, oral reports, compositions and class discussions based on readings from newspapers, magazines and current writings of significant authors. Prerequisites: ITL 202, three or four years of high-school Italian or permission of the instructor.

MTH MATHEMATICS

MTH-110 INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS I (NO COMPUTER LAB)
A data-oriented, applied introduction to statistics. Topics include descriptive statistics, data distributions, random sampling, relationships, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. Statistical software will be used throughout this course. Prerequisite: Three years of regents- level mathematics. Students may not take both MTH 110 and MTH 111.

MTH-111 INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS (WITH COMPUTER LAB)
A data oriented, applied introduction to statistics; includes a two hour per week computer lab. Topics include descriptive statistics, data distributions, random sampling, relationships, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. Statistical software will be used throughout this course. Prerequisite:Three years of Regents-level mathematics. Students may not take both MTH 110 and MTH 111.

MTH-145 CALCULUS I
A study of differential and integral calculus of one variable and applications. Prerequisite: four units of high-school mathematics or permission of the department chair.

MUS MUSIC

MUS-241 CONCEPT ALBUM: FROM GUTHRIE TO RADIOHEAD
Students will learn the skill of active listening and develop a critical framework for listening to, thinking about and responding to music. This attention to detail will enable the student to "see the big picture", to make connections, and to understand how the details help to build a cohesive large-scale work. The course will focus on the history of the concept album from Woody Guthrie to Radiohead and cover many genres, musical techniques and song forms. There will be a heavy emphasis on listening and written response. The following questions will be examined: What actually happens in the details of a musical work that enables the listener to understand the work as a unified whole? What is the composer's intent: is it to tell a story, to describe a state of mind, or to comment on society? Fulfills Core Requirement(s): Visual and Performing Arts (VPA).

PHY PHYSICS

PHY-101 NON-CALCULUS GENERAL PHYSICS I
An elementary course in physics with topics selected from mechanics of solids and fluids, kinetic theory, and heat. A thorough knowledge of high school algebra and trigonometry is a prerequisite. Because of the integration between PHY 101 and PHY 103, PHY 103 must be taken concurrently.

PHY-103 GENERAL PHYSICS LAB
The activities of these laboratory courses are designed to give students taking PHY 101-102 and PHY 105-106 direct experience with the fundamental concepts that are the subjects of those courses, making these laboratory courses an integral part of PHY 101-102 and PHY 105-106.
