    I just love her so much as a person, I learned A LOT in her class, not just academic stuff. It was eyes opening and I loved every second of it. There is a lot of reading, pretty much average in a criminology class but at least it was interesting and easy to read ! She is so funny too, she is very humble and doesnt talk down to anybody.

    Prof Bruckert is great. If you are looking to pass with little work then do not take her course. The online course was set up for students to succeed as long as they followed each class. Her mini assignments helped boost my grade up and were so helpful for the exams. She also gave the option of skipping the third exam. Lectures are fair in length.

    Lots of homework

    The material for this class was super interesting which is why I didnt drop the class, but the course itself is very heavy (e.g.: 3 midterms, textbook, activity for every class, 12 page paper). Also, one of the TAs was more helpful then the other which became annoying. Overall, this class should be a 4th year class and not a 2nd year.

    If you do not want a lot of work, avoid this class with her at ALL COSTS. Overall the course was quite interesting, I found the TA much better than the Prof. She is very excessive for this being a second year course, the guidelines are unnecessarily structured like a 4th year course. She is not very understanding, overall AVOID HER.

    Activities for every single lecture that range from discussion posts that take 5 minutes to worksheets that take an hour or more, very inconsistent workload. You are forced to reflect on your personal experiences with gendered violence often and if this is emotionally troubling for you she does not offer an alternative.

    Professor Bruckert does not provide TW for her classes that deal with sensitive subject matter, she reads directly out of the mandatory textbook that she wrote, the workload is unnecessarily heavy and the way she interacts with students is extremely belittling. If you don't understand a concept or need clarification don't try to reach out to her.

She assigns a lot of mini assignments but nothing too difficult and in the end it helps you achieve a higher grade. You will learn a lot in this class!

    Chris is honestly a great professor! She is very dedicated to the course and the research. I actually learnt so much in this class, and never missed a class because it was that great. You do need to work for your grade though, lots of assignments and midterms etc. But, put in the effort and youll do great.

    I really enjoyed this class. We had some classes online and lots of fun group work ( in class activities that go towards ur final grade ). Theres a mini homework activity you have to complete before every class and Socratic quizzes (worth 25% of ur grade) and doing the readings is mandatory to pass. She doesn't post her slides. Cool prof!

    I can see Christine being a not great teacher for general 1st and 2nd year courses. However her ability to teach 4th year courses is fantastic. She uses modern, tangible material, and breaks down the course so that your strengths offset your weaknesses. I would highly suggest her as a seminar lecturer.

    She is an overall good prof! Interesting lectures and material make the course what it is, she always captured my attention by incorporating videos and even movies in the syllabus. The midterms were short answer and fill in the blank, while the final was a take-home essay. As long as you read the course pack and attend lectures, you'll do fine!

    Christine is extremely passionate about her work. She teaches the material with great detail, is up to date with contemporary issues, and is always available through email. You have to do the readings to pass, which is expected in university. The readings themselves are easy and enjoyable but make up a lot of the midterm and the final exam.
