Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This course is a one-semester introduction to religion that will replace Rel 1001 (Intro to Western Religion) and Rel 1002 (Intro to Eastern Religion). It is part of a larger plan to reconfigure our religion offerings.
IT WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED IF THIS COURSE COULD BE APPROVED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. IT WILL BE THE BASIC COURSE FOR ATTRACTING STUDENTS TO OUR MAJOR, MINOR, AND THE DEPARTMENT IN GENERAL.

Rollback: I support this proposal. But a syllabus will be required as an attachment.
