Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I enjoy the course and the exams are pretty easy. As long as you keep up with the content then you're good. Most advisors recommend the course for an upper level elective. Criminology is actually interesting and people of all majors are in the class.
I learned about the prison system in the US and different "types" of criminals. Most of the material is pretty interesting. It's a lot of vocab word type of learning. I have a better perspective of criminals and the reason why crime happens.

Advice for students:
You need to do the weekly quizzes and the few discussion assignments. Sometimes there is random attendance quizzes in class, so it's good to go to lecture. There are 4 exams and the last one that is the final is cumulative so it's important to stay current with what you're learning.
