    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this class to all CJ Majors! This class is very informative and interesting! We utilize the book in the class but we also did alot of hands on works as well! You learn so much about the human body and how to solve a case! Frank Jones is a criminal investigator by night so he really knows how to explain things well from his own experience, which is awesome because it keeps the class interesting.

    Course highlights:

    You learn so much about the human body and how to solve a case! In this class I learned how to do fingerprints, blood splattered anaylsis and much more. And by the end of the course everyone gets to participate in a group and solve a crime scene. This mean people will be assigned different jobs such as, crime scene photographer, evidence collector, interviewer, interrogator, and many more. Collectively as a group you strategically play your role and think critically to solve the crime scene. In the end you will be able to tell if the victim was murdered or if they committed suicide. You should also be able to type up a report of the crime scene addressing who, what, when, where, how, and why!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're considering taking this course it is very important to stay on top of your work. Frank Jones is very straight foreward about what he expects. He will ask alot of questions at random so make sure you are keeping up with reading assignments!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jones is an amazing professor. He has many years of experience as a Police officer and then as a Homicide Detective. He is knowledgeable in what he teaches, he is engaging and the class is hands-on. So much fun and you learn a lot! It's a tough class but if you are loving what you learn (like I did) you won't have any problems.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the final exam! You get do investigate a mock crime scene putting to use all of the skills you obtained during class - crime scene photography, fingerprinting, note taking, report writing; everything you would actually be doing out in the field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You want to love learning about the criminal justice field. This class is a huge part of what the CJ field is going to really be like. This field is so much fun to learn and once you start to learn you don't want to stop!
