Schoenthaler spends about 3 months of class talking about himself and the rest is the review before the tests and the tests. It's a snooze fest since he has no outline for instruction and constantly says um. Easy pass, nice guy, not taught well.

Dr. Schoenthalar is by far the best professor ive ever taken in my whole college life. he is so inspirational and intelligent. he helps out A LOT. he gave me two A's in both Treatment of Offender and Criminology and i didnt think i did that great. he is seriously a humble and nurturing person, i definitely recommend him and would take him again

I only have one word for this class: pointless. Did I learn anything? No. Did I waste my time by attending class every week? Yes. Do I recommend this class? No. Does the professor try to argue that the sole cause of crime is malnutrition? Yes. How a self-proclaimed 'criminologist' says that the crime dip of the 90s was due to folate is just absurd.

Okay I don't recall the section # for the class but I took Criminology etc with Dr. Schoenthaler. He is an excellent professor who knows how to teach. He cares about his students and I recommend his class. Take your vitamins! :D

Pretty straightforward tests, tells you what is on the test (usually in order of test so that's nice) a week before the test, but lectures were not usually on topic, but he tried to relate them to the book at the end of class. LOVES to talk about himself, and how well he has done. Which is very well. But gets old.

Class was "Treatment of the Offender" and he is one of the best instructors I have ever had. He makes the class interesting by adding real-world experience. He also spends time to review the material before the tests.

He's one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life. He is very willing to help you with any concerns or questions you have, inside and out of class. There are only four exams, and he tells you what exactly will be asked on each exam. He can sometimes be longwinded and get distracted in lecture, but it happens. I suggest you take him if you can.

I took his juvenile delinquency class. He's a pretty easy going teacher. No assignments, only 4 tests. He tells you what will be on the test and which page in the text book it is on. But, he has a tendency to make what could be a 20 minute lecture into an hour and a half or more! And he loves, loves, loves to toot his own horn!

Great Professor with lots of information. He makes learning fun and if you are not passing then you are probably not going to class. He has done a lot in his career and his stories are awesome!! You must take his classes!!

I took his juvenile delinquency class and it was my favorite of all of my classes. He has lots of interesting stories to tell and makes the information very easy to learn. He also gives you everything that will be on the exam so if you don't pass there is something wrong with you. Excellent teacher and I will take his classes in the future and woul

He is a very easy teacher. If you go to class he tells you, "Page 231 term on marriage, page 232 divorce %..." If you don't get an A on the four tests than something is wrong. Your grade is only based on the 4 tests, attendance is NOT taken, which is very nice for busy college students who can't always make it to class because of a paper or work

Funny to see that he hasn't changed much. I took this class in 97 and all he did was talk about himself. It was very painful. In fact I was going to sign up for another class until I saw that he was teaching.

Dr. Schoenthaler spent the whole time tooting his own horn, so to speak. He is awfully full of himself and would teach a class about himself if given the opportunity. I did well in his classes, they were easy, but painful to sit through.
