This course contributes an important 400-level course to the religion curriculum, and a much needed course on religious history beyond the US to the history curriculum. In addition, it is central to a SHPR initiative to create law courses related to each of the specialties of the school. Finally, this class contributes an important course to the in-process certificate in Legal Perspectives. (Parallel proposal for #101996)
SUMMARY: This Expedited NEW course proposal seeks to create a cross listed course with REL 484/584. See Proposal 101996 (REL 484/584) to see reviews.
CIP 540101 has been added to the proposal.

APA has:
1) Effective Term has been changed from Spring 2019 to Winter 2019. This is the closest approval deadline.
2) Changed the Course Description. CPS had it double and the description did not mirror Proposal 101996 (REL 484/584).
3) Cross listed courses have been added to this proposal.
4) Equivalent Course has been removed. It is not needed.

 Banner was checked for this course number (484/584) to confirm the course number has not been used in the last 6 years. (8/31/2018 3:26 PM (484/584 was last used 199401)).

CONTACTS: Individuals have been added as contacts.
Reason: Their academic program has been identified as being impacted by this expedited change course proposal.

All Components are met per the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council guidelines.

this Course:

Investigates the relationship between religion and law in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim society, as well as modern western “secular” society, considering the question from a theoretical, historical, and contemporary case-study perspective. We will look at the religious origins of legal systems, the ways in which members of religious communities engaged with their own and others’ laws, and the ways in which modern societies have used law to separate “religion” from the state.
