    OPEN EARS, OPEN MINDS is a listening and discussion-based class that explores the way indie rock and indie pop music intersect with classical new music (music composed within the last 50 years). Each week will feature a new classical work juxtaposed with a piece of popular music with the intention of drawinf parallels between the two seemingly disparate worlds. Through weekly listening and writing assignments, students will learn to open their minds and ears to a variety of sound worlds. By cultivating critical listeners who are willing to explore challenging sounds and dismiss genre barriers, the hope is that students will apply this openness of thinking to their academic journey and beyond.
    Enrollment Requirements
    Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
