Online classes are very different than the traditional classroom experience. If you need help in a online course you would either have to setup a appointment with the professors or you can just email them for extra help. For finals instead of a test it's a project or a 5 page essay. Workload I can say we receive more work and you would need to sign on more often to check if there is anything new posted. I was confused at first but overtime I caught the hang . To pass an online class is much easier because your graded on participation, attendance and your submitted homework. In order to register for classes you would need your advisors PIN number. I can say everyone learns different so everyone experience and expectations are different when it come to online classes.

To major criminal justice it's actually normal, a lot of people when I first arrived were either majoring it or going to switch to major criminal justice. Well there are certain classes that I took that I thought were helpful to the career I'm striving for, such as studying the different types of perspective of a subject or situation. The workload some weeks were a lot so I would split up the work to make sure that all my homework was done and handed in either before or on its due date, or weeks professors would give little homework so I would finish it all up and if I want I would start on the next weeks homework to have a head start. The criminal justice curriculum wasn't easy but it want so difficult, so I understood most of the time but when I would get stuck or I just couldn't understand I would ask my professors for help. As of internships, It wasn't bought to my attention that they have for my major and as for job opportunities I haven't found or heard of any.

To begin with I started college late February, so I was stuck with whatever class had space for the spring semester. There was this one class cancelled due to the low enrollment in that specific class which left me having to replace that class . As for my experience with the professors I can say that was the best, I only had 2 classes where I had to come into class and I can say those two professors were very helpful and dependable, they helped me the most they can to help me excel and receive a 3.41 gpa average. The three other classes were online; which had me confused when I first began but throughout I was on top of my work, plus some online classes would have exercises to help me understand what was the purpose of the work and what was I trying to accomplish at the end of the lesson. The size of the class I noticed was a struggle because in one class it was only me and one other scholar and I was sort of lost but I can say the professor kept me on track and helped me to understand the work but the other class was about 30 scholars and I would get frustrated everytime a student would stop the class to go over a step the whole class just went over but the professor did help every student achieve a high grade.
