Overall okay, however I had a great tute and all the assignments/exam were pretty easy as you were given a lot of free reign to choose which crime you want to study. If I could go back, I definitely wouldn't do this subject again. Lectures themselves are a major letdown as they are all sooooo boring. Compared to my other subjects, it really didn't feel like a university subject as there wasn't a lot of abstract thinking per se, rather just lets apply this theory to this crime every week over and over until eventually every crime is caused by the same theory but all these theories are so outdated that you can't even trust what you're learning.

Interesting lectures, well-organised tutorials and relevant assignments

The content was interesting and delivered well. The lecturers were very knowledgeable and were lovely :) Tutorials are great as long as you do the readings. The main thing is learning the theories and being coherent.

fun, easy to do. tip to think abstractly. readings don't really need to be done to do well, just know the basics, aka the theories for criminal behaviour and know definitions well, then express your ideas and articulate them in a sophisticated but easy to understand language. all g, will do well. subject was actually interesting btw, and way more fun in class.

Expected something that would be far more engaging. Both lecturers were great and knew the content well. Tutors are hit or miss. Readings were very dry.

This subject was quite dry, and I found myself fast forwarding the lectures online to get through the irrelevant content. I felt that there was a lot of information on what the crimes were but not actually much detail in actually explaining why people do these crimes (isn’t that what criminology is about lol?). Felt there needed to be more time spent on explaining the theories, especially as not all were covered in the lectures and readings, which made the assignments harder. I found the assignments to be quite interesting however. My tutor was also very good, we had some interesting discussions and debates, not always completely on topic, but interesting nonetheless.

Lectures were basic and they felt like they were aimed at high-schoolers. A lot of time was wasted on random movie and TV clips. I'm just glad the lectures were recorded so I could watch them at double speed and skip the nonsense. Going in I thought I might do a second major in Criminology but this subject completely turned me off the idea.

Lectures, tutorials and assignments were shit. Totally deterred me from pursuing a career in criminology lmao.

The subject synopsis seemed interesting, but wasn’t what I expected. The lectures have almost no use in your assessments, and tutors aren’t specialised in criminology, rather sociology, which affected how they viewed different theories. Wouldn’t recommend it.

All of the lectures were interesting. However, I found that tutorials aren't helping and boring.
