Potential Overlap/Conflicts.  Does course content overlap with or complement other courses offered at Tufts?  The Committee on Curricula encourages consultation with other potentially interested departments and instructors to prevent delay in committee consideration.  What have you done to check potential overlap or complementarity with courses in other potentially interested departments?  Have you sent your proposal to potentially interested instructors as a courtesy?
