Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is a wonderful course and the material will keep students engaged. I have taken several criminal Justice courses at Kaplan University but this has to be one of my favorite. There was not too much material to grasp and the instructor gave a lot of interesting firsthand accounts that brought more reality to what we were learning.
The course gave so much interesting facts about the crime scene and how first responders must handle the many different scenes they may be called to. The crime scene investigator job is one that is of great importance and that was all made apparent by what we learned in the course. Learning about the many types of evidence that may be at a scene and how to collect, preserve and document that evidence was a big part of this course.

Advice for students:
Students considering this course should be prepared for a lot of writing assignments and photographing crime scenes that they will have to create. The learning activities require a little creativity but overall they were fun to do. The writing assignments were not too lengthy but they do require the student to keep up with the reading assignments. Keeping up with the reading makes it much easier to write a good paper as well as following up with your own research on the topic for discussion during the week. Main thing is to take good notes form the seminars and your reading.
