took it with yule. there were online quizzes of 5 questions. Based off textbook so you NEED it. Very easy to get at least 4/5. A midterm that was MC and long answer, it was fair. Book analysis that you have to do, and i did it on the crack dealing which was so interesting. Yule is a good prof, and i had the 3 hour night class but i felt she tried to drag it over the 3 hours and repeated herself alot. I took soc 1500 which helped. Recommend it as your elective (im in bio sci)

I took this class last year with Scott Brandon. He was very tough to listen to in lectures, and since notes weren't provided (not sure if this is the case now!) it was hard to follow too. It was a straightforward class with no papers or anything but be prepared to put a lot of effort into the course.

Decent enough class, had prof Yule. Clear teaching, notes online for later viewing. Pretty chilling overall. I had 2 small midterms, a paper, and an exam no online bullshit discussion or anything. I found this extremely easy after taking criminology in first year, and social deviance as well (however don't take social deviance w Scott Brandon, you will want to kill yourself from boredom). Good class if ur interested in crime and also murders and sick stuff like that. Hope this helps, cheers

Took this course with Yule. She made boring topics into interesting lectures. I loved the writing assignment we had to do and there was two other midterms and one final. There was not tons of information to know for them so I did well on all tests. She was very approachable if a student had a question.
