    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He was a great professor! He works for NYPD and knows what he is teaching!

    Course highlights:

    Professor Hall was my favorite professor of my semester. He doesn't always stay on topic but will find a way to bring it home. He tells a lot of "war stories" and he brings in other people that work in the field to open your career options.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to what he says in class and keep up on reading the text book

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. The professor was very thoughtful and had a lot of insight when discussing new topics, even with some very controversial Social Justice issues including Global Poverty, Health Care and LGBTQ community rights. Professor Peirce also gave students the chance to share our thoughts on topics that mattered to us with her and as a group with our classmates.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the the justice system in America and how it contrasts with other nations' justice systems. Specifically I learned more about the different courts that criminals and the accused face before being prosecuted or sentenced and how depending on your crime and your background you can be brought to the Drug Court or Criminal Court. Each of the different courts try to find a way to deal with the "deviants" in our society either through treatment or punishment in order to bring them back into the greater population as functional members.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only thing to remember, as with every college class, is to mind deadlines and read the syllabus thoroughly so that you can do well in your classes. Also remember to spend time in the library and go over the terms in your textbook until you are competent in their definitions. And for students that want to do exceptionally well, READ THE NEWSPAPER DAILY! There is no better way to say this, I would not have done as well as I did if I did not read the New York Times everyday, it kept me informed and up to date on several topics that some of my classmates had no idea about and this made me more effective than them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend her because she knows what she's talking about. She is new professor but she's highly skilled. I have so much more to learn from her but so far she's been great.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this course. I've learned a lot about the criminal justice system and the background of criminals. It is said that criminals get their behaviors from their childhood and the way they were brought up.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's just hard to hear so sit up close. She speaks low and has an accent but trust me when I say, if you pay attention and participate, you'll learn a lot from her class.
