    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is by far the course you need to take when you are starting on your Criminal Justice degree. I would call this Criminal Justice Basics 101 - a little bit of everything. This course teaches you about how well integrated the criminal justice system is, how to determine key facts and wording used within the departments and how to decipher terminology. Students worked together but also learned a lot through simulations. There was more than just reading and researching. This class was fun and interactive.

    Course highlights:

    Having the simulations helped students learn in a more realistic sense how law enforcement or corrections may handle a situation. The discussion board scenarios actually gave the student more of an option to do research and use personal judgement for answers rather than based solely on research. Each assignment is different from the other so the entire course keeps you interested. I took a lot from this course, although I found a lot of it to be common sense, I still learned a lot about the three branches of criminal justice and the rights of prisoners.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time and don't think too much into the questions. Do your research outside of Google. Your local police department webpage has a lot of information that will answer questions that you need.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for anyone that is interested in learning about how the Criminal Justice System works. It is a very thorough, yet informative course that definitely keeps you interested.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the three different branches that make up the Criminal Justice System, which include the police, the courts, and the corrections department. I found it very interesting how the three branches work with one another to create a functioning Criminal Justice System as well as how errors and mistakes can be made and/or interpreted by other branches.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be overwhelmed by what the syllabus states. Take each assignment and make sure to do them one at-a-time so you can gain a better understanding of what you are learning.
