CREDIT POINTS 15

Course Co-ordinator: To be confirmed

Pre-requisite(s): None.

Note(s): This course will be available in 2012/13 as DR 2047.

This course discusses the issues involved in reconstructing the history and the religions of ancient Israel and Judah.

2 one-hour lectures per week and 1 one-hour tutorial every second week.

1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written examination (50%), 1 essay (2,000 words, 25%), 1 web-based mid-term examination, using WebCT quiz-tool (25%).

Resit: 1 two-hour written examination (100%).

A student will not be eligible to take the resit unless s/he has fulfilled all the requirements for internal assessment (essay + midterm examination).

All pieces of internal assessment must be completed and submitted before week 46. Failure to do so will disqualify the student from taking the final exam and the resit.

A grade below 6 on any piece of internal assessment will disqualify the student from taking the final exam and the resit.

Late submission of essay: 1 point will be reduced every two working days. A student will thus receive a grade below 6 after maximum 30 working days past the date of submission, depending of the starting grade of the essay.
