I love Prof Walsh. Best professor I have had! Hes hilarious and engages students to learn. I remember everything that he taught this semester. He tells his students to set goals and not to allow anyone to tell you otherwise. Anything is possible, enjoy retirement Prof. Walsh! Well deserved.

Prof Walsh is the probably the best teacher at SFSU. He encourages critical thinking and is very approachable. He is strict with his rules but reasonable in making them. You'll definitely get your money's worth out of his lectures. He's animated, honest, and informed on each lecture topic. Also, a great advisor to help you w/ professional goals.

The best professor I have had at sf state. I wish I could take him for every CJ class . He is super funny and very friendly. He is extremely well informed on the class topic and makes the lectures super interesting. Really sad that the semester is over tbh

Hands down, best CJ instructor I've had yet! Very clear grading. If you pay attention to all lectures you will know exactly what he is looking for on exams and briefs. He aims to create thinkers, not minions so you'll get your money's worth. He's also very approachable in office and in class. Wish he taught more CJ courses.

Walsh is such a character! You won't get bored in his lectures and everything he has to say is significant in life and the class. He's honest and clearly has a passion to teach. Show up to lecture and you'll know exactly what you need to pass with an A. I'd definitely take any class he's teaching!

Absolutely best teacher thus far! He provides students with facts and refrains from influencing or skewing our ways of thinking. Huge on independent and critical thinking. Be sure to attend ALL classes as this will help you pass with flying colors.

Professor Walsh is honestly a wonderful CJ 300 lecturer. Even though he rambles sometimes but the way how he lectures the cases you get the feeling as if you were there. The class WAS REALLY EASY. 3 easy quizzes 1 on campus, 2 take-homes, 2 Case-briefs and analysis, and one writing finally. You won't regret taking him.

Professor Walsh is AMAZING! I have taken CJ 300 and CJ 400 with him, and I must say that those have been my favorite classes at SFSU. For CJ 300, it consists of 2 Case Briefs, 3-4 take home quizzes, a field study paper at the very end of the semester, and a response final exam. Walsh is a great story teller and helps you picture the cases. TAKE!!!!

Lectures are pretty long with no break, but worth it because he has lots to say that is actually relevant to the class even though it seems like a tangent. He will go over your work with you as many times as you need it until you are squared away. Overall, I would say Mr. Walsh is a great teacher.

3 quizzes and a final. As well as 2 case reviews that you turn in. Basically just sit and take notes on his lecture. Office hours are great and he is very easy to like and understand. Great guy and sometimes goes off on old police stories. Don't miss class he won't care but you'll need the notes. Very easy grader. Lots of books, worth it though.

Loved this guy! You do have to put in the work to pass but he makes everything clear. Quizzes are based on his lecture so make sure to take notes. Can't think of anything negative about this teacher. One of the best!

Absolute favorite professor I have ever had! He is a critical thinker and expects the same of his students. He is clear in his stance but open to healthy debate. He does not subscribe to popular thought, but rather what is meaningful and what will gain true knowledge & understanding. Not another run of the mill liberal hippy on a platform at SFSU.

I took Walsh's CJ 400 course over the summer, and it was incredibly easy! The class consisted of 3 take home tests and 1 take home final! Walsh is an amazing professor, his lectures are hilarious and you can tell that he really cares about his students. He is extremely knowledgeable about the criminal justice system and speaks from experience.

Professor Walsh is awesome!! He draws from experience when talking about cases and he is very animated. You should definitely read the cases, but he does go over many of them in class. For the briefs, if you see him during office hours he will give you great feedback, highly recommend going to see him. Overall just a great professor.

For CJ400, it's a pretty fun class. He gives about 4 or 5 take home tests that we go over in class. He's great with relating his past experiences with the subject. Gives great advice! Always very engaging and funny. He teaches this class different from CJ300. I highly recommend Walsh!
