    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    So far I am finding this class very interesting as it is composed of the following: - The SOCIOLOGY OF LAW, which is an attempt at scientific analysis of the conditions under which criminal law and which is seldom included in general books on criminology. - CRIMINAL ETIOLOGY, (which is an attempt at scientific analysis of the study of causes or reasons for crime). - PENOLOGY, which is concerned with the control of crime. I personally find the topics pleasantly interesting and the professor is very good.

    Course highlights:

    Right now we are focusing on how every criminological theory contains a set of: ASSUMPTIONS(about human nature, social structure, and the principles of causation etc.) DESCRIPTION of the phenomena to be explained (facts a theory must fit), and an EXPLANATION, or prediction, of that phenomenon. Criminological theories are primarily concerned with etiology (the study of causes or reasons for crime), but occasionally have important things to say about actors in the criminal justice system, such as police, attorneys, correctional personnel, and victims. The course isn't over but has drawn me in as I have a passion for criminal law

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The love for criminal law, the materials for the course and an open mind. Be creative!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself was not very difficult, learned a lot about the basics of Criminology. Also helped that the professor was very thorough and helped a lot!

    Course highlights:

    Definitely a helpful course, need if you're going to pursue Criminology/Criminal Justice. Comes in handy when taking other Crim related courses since you learn much of the basics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    With the professor I had, it was a very easy course and helpful too. Studying with flashcards/quizlet is the best way to go about learning the information for tests.
