    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class! My professor was so funny and explained things really well, and I found discussion to be super helpful. Even if you're not a CCJS major, it also knocks out a GenEd.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about criminological theories and about the history of the subject in general.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a great class to take! Make sure you take good notes and pay attention during class, do the readings (which aren't hard and the textbook isn't too long) and just keep the theories straight, and you'll do fine.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a class of theories, I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have to take it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many great theories that helped me in CCJS 100.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and pay attention to stories and names of people.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in understanding why people commit crimes. Not only is it interesting but it tests your thoughts and morals as to whether certain policies are right and/or wrong. We had the opportunity to analyze some of the most prolific serial criminals of the past and current centuries. The professor made it fun while maintaining a very tough class.

    Course highlights:

    I would say that one of the highlights of the class was definitely analyzing a serial killer and determining possible reasons as to why they killed. During this assignment, we chose a serial killer or a serial criminal that damaged a lot of people and attempted to make our own conclusion. IN all the classes that I have ever taken, I have ever taken, I have never had this much freedom to make my own decisions and conclusions about a real person. One of the key things I learned in this course was that there are so many different reasons why someone might commit a crime than simply how they were raised or a mental disease.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is a way I found to study was by taking notes in class and then before the exam rewriting all of those notes in a notebook. To keep up with the lectures, I typed up all of my notes so when it came time to study, I just had to write it all down. The class is very information heavy and you have to pay attention to the tiny details so by writing it all down again makes it much easier to remember each part.
