    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was absolutely amazing! I learned many things about the Criminal Justice system in general that I did not know before. My Professor was extremely helpful and reliable when our class needed him. Professor Lawrence was more than a teacher, he was there for you inside and out the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    There were two parts of the course one being the introduction to Criminal Justice and the other American Corrections. American Corrections was the easiest to understand being that it dealt with the correctional facilities and what kind of problems that officers face in correctional facilities. The introduction to Criminal Justice was a little more difficult because it had many different parts to it and quite a few terms that you had to know for each part. We were assigned essays every night which basically was a review of what we learned in class that day.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    When we had an upcoming test my professor would review briefly go over what you should expect to see on the test. I would advise you to take lots of notes not just from the board but what your teacher is actually saying along with his/her examples. Highlight things you don't understand and look them up that night for a deeper explanation.

    Be prepared to teach yourself.
