    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is only a survey course so it's simple but can help students grasp what a possible career in law enforcement entails. This course gives insight to issues in criminal justice while providing arguments to both sides. For example should police officers wear body cameras for their safety as well as the due process of their arrestees? The course gives information on crime rates, history and ethics in criminal justice. It prepares students for further courses in the field relating to law or ethics but still provides useful knowledge to people who wish not to continue in the major.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this course was learning about possible job opportunities. I wrote a paper based on research about law enforcement positions. I learned qualifications, requirements, and benefits of jobs. Those that involved government work offered a larger starting salary but required prior experience and more education. The more danger the job entailed, the more benefits were oven such as health insurance, and protection. Another highlight was mastering how a trial works and all the components. The American court system is designed to protect the accused by protecting their rights. Choices to restrict freedom can only be made after careful consideration of background, and jury selection and after a preliminary hearing has taken place. I feel comfortable as a citizen that through my education, I know my rights and better understand the justice and correction systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this criminal justice administration pre-requisite course, I suggest an interest in law enforcement, law, or human services. Police jobs offer a low starting salary but unlimited danger, so possible recruits need to have an interest in being a public servent while receiving almost no public appreciation. This course can help spark even the littlest interest in criminal Justice.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would advise all citizens to learn as much as possible about economics and criminal justice so they will have an understanding of the world we live in today.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained insight in areas I never thought of before, like how jails and prisons originated and why. Where we get funds for building these faculties and who receive educational and medical support while sentenced to them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To incorporate life experiences into these courses and educate other people.
