    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this class. All exams came straight from the class notes and the books worked for supplemental material but were not required. This course did great with relating different chapters with other and to things occurring in our everyday lives. There were 5 small activities that related to the class and got you to critically think, they were not too hard but allowed for better memorization of the material and real world situations.

    Course highlights:

    This class really got me to think more about the world around me. It focused on how the news media and government feed us lies. It was a very passionate class and I have completely changed what I use for news due to this class, very eye opening.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and pay attention. Ask questions if you need to, the class was very relaxed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it is all about the myths and realities of crime. Even if you aren't interested in criminology as a major take this course because it gives you a greater understanding of the society we live in and how crime is sensationalized because of the media.

    Course highlights:

    A major subject that we touched on was the War on Drugs. The War on Drugs costs around $15 billion dollars annually and most of the people that we incarcerate only used drugs recreationally for personal use and don't distribute. Prisons are so overcrowded that prisoners are kept in a singular large room occupied by bunk beds in every available space. This is called "warehousing." The United States incarcerates more people than the rest of the world combined.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't need to memorize exact statistics and percentages. You just need an understanding of how our society works in participation with the criminal justice system and how crime works. For example everyone has the fear that they are going to be assaulted at gun or knife point in the grocery store parking lot. This fear is so prominent due to the media sensationalizing and only focusing on the stories that will get them views. Fear creates power so they monopolize on the violent crimes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is very clear in what she expects from you. There is a lot of note taking, but she makes sure that everybody has written down the slide before she moves on. There are 3 exams in the semester, and each exam contains questions that are directly from the notes. Very easy to get an A as long as you show up and pay attention.

    Course highlights:

    This class is meant to show the justice/legal system and what works and does not work. It challenges you to think about other perspectives and open your mind.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you show up to class every day and write down what she has on the slides. I took extra notes on what she said too, and it helped when I was studying for the exams.
