REL 101 - Old Testament Survey


Essays should preferably be prepared using MS-Word, and e-mailed to Dr. Rollinson at rel101@hellokitty.com, rel101@mail2world.com, rel101@catholic.org as an Attachment.
Please do not use macros when writing your essays - the anti-virus software used by ENMU deleted the whole of one of my students essays because it thought the macro was a virus.
If you wish to use another method, please contact Dr. Rollinson first.

Apart from Essay No. 1, which may be from one to three pages in length, essays should be from three to ten pages in length, consisting of material relevant to the topic. They should not consist of material cut-and-pasted from encyclopedias, on-line crib sites, or other material not of your own writing.

You should check your work with Turnitin © before sending it to me.
