Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is definitely an interesting course to take, even for those who aren't a Criminal Justice Major. I say this because this course really can feed from multiple disciplines such as: Sociology, Psychology, and even Nursing. This particular professor encourages input from degree plans outside of Criminal Justice, and that adds to the depth of the information learned in this course.
I think from this course I learned that preconceived notions about Rape and Sexual Violence, while sometimes helpful, really can block your willingness to learn. The highlight of this course is that it's invited to bring these misconceptions to the table and discuss what makes them valid or not.

Advice for students:
I would suggest at least doing the minimum readings required for this course. They weren't too complex and really allowed for a more informed discussion board. I would also suggest that you leave your on personal biases at the door if you can't objectively defend them without attacking others. The topic of Rape and Sexual Violence has the potential to make otherwise reasonable people insensible especially in an online forum.
