    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it taught me to realize how many of the theories learned in the class are used all around me. It also is a good base for the rest of the courses you will take being a criminal justice major. The theories are mentioned in a lot of the other courses as a way to help connect everything a cj major is learning.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was when Professor Sullivan had us sing back the theories and terms to him. It was different at first but it helped me to remember the terms. One theory that stuck with me as Broken Windows theory because its in play in so many poverty stricken areas. It's just interesting to master the theories ad be able to see why something is happening the way it is.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give a prospective student would be to make sure and read the assigned readings. Reading before class really helped me to grasp the material and follow along in class. Its always better to have an understanding of what the professor is going to be talking about. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions! A lot of students feel out of place when they need to ask a question but, don't! I'm sure you're not the only one thinking that.
