    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Mohr is a wonderful teacher and will definitely get your mind on the topic we are learning. She does a lot of lecturing, but she also adds flare into the teaching so it's fun.

    Course highlights:

    Since this is an FIS class, you will learn the basics of crime. The highlight of the course was when we talked about blood splatter and how the different shapes and angles are a different type of murder.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take detailed notes on the lectures. The tests have some of her word from word teachings.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The Textbook used for the course was interesting, and a comprehensive guide to many different fields in Forensic Science. I liked the style of the online labs and the online professor was very helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about the course was that it was very comprehensive. The book covered a wide range of topics. I learned a lot about the specific processes used to analyze different types of evidence such as blood, fiber, and glass when I did the online labs

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to really focus on the definitions in the book. Take detailed notes with a very clear distinction between chapters, as rules for one type of evidence could be confused with rules for another type of evidence.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Let's face it, sometimes all the facts, definition and procedures in the world of criminology can drag on and get kind of boring. Dr. Mohr has a way of making learning all the procedures and history behind each part of forensics interesting. She has easy to follow PowerPoint lectures and is always willing to stop and answer questions. The material is a lot to cover, but it is easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was "Sing-Along Friday's". Everyday Dr. Mohr would play different types of music, but she played music everyone could sing and dance to on Friday. Also, her in class demonstrations of lifting fingerprints off of paper and bashing a pumpkin with a hammer to show different types of wounds was quite enjoyable. All in all, I learned about all of the components that make up what we know as Forensic Science.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can not wait until the last minute to study in this course! She goes over a lot of information before each exam, and it is impossible to cram all of that information into your brain the night before the test. Also, take notes while she is giving the lecture! There are important things that she says that are not on the PowerPoint. If you review the material, you will be fine in this course.
