    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for the absolute wealth of information Professor Tcherni-Buzzeo provides. She is so passionate about the material and makes it easy for her students to be passionate as well. Many of the theories you will study will open your mind to a whole new world of critical thinking when it comes to Criminality.

    Course highlights:

    I think that the highlight of this course was the in class discussions and comparisons of the different theories we were studying. Professor Tcherni-Buzzeo would constantly ask questions like, "Now how does this theory compare to this other person's theory, and do you agree?", which would always spark a spirited conversation about the strengths and weaknesses of whatever theory we were discussing that class. I also enjoyed the additional, real-world articles that were recommended each week. It really helped to put things in perspective when applying the theories to real life scenarios, rather than only having a single textbook to explain a concept.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This may seem cliché, but DO THE READINGS, it is nearly impossible to follow along, join in discussion, and succeed in this class without completing the readings for the class. It is not a course where memorization will get you by. You must actually comprehend the material and be able to apply it to real life scenarios.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really liked this teacher. She brought the concepts to life because she not only used information from the book but she used information from her personal life and the things going on in around us to help us better understand what was being taught.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked the aspect of her bringing her life and the world around us into the classroom. It was the highlight of each class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, ask questions and participate in the class discussions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While we did learn alot, she made the class very relevant to some of the issues that were unfolding in the world around us. She also brought in her own upbringing fromg her home country and thought brought light to her credibility.

    Course highlights:

    We went through multiple theories as to why people commit crimes. There are some you will agree with and some you will flat out hate. When entering the class you may have one idea add to why people commit crimes but this class will either change your mind or make your opinion sooner while also giving you ammunition behind your belief.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! When the pages are assigned read them and if you have a question ask it as soon as possible because she will move in if no one speaks up about something being unclear.
