Dr. Murphy is a phenomenal professor. The course seems easy because he explains everything with complete clarity and passion. It's clear that he loves what he studies and he wants to share that with students. He's entertaining and engaging and has such a wealth of knowledge on public rhetoric. There is no better professor in communication at UIUC.

Murphy is an old school guy, teaches with an overhead instead of a powerpoint. His exams come from everything he says in class, nearly word for word. Very easy class.

I liked the class. The TA Katie Irwin is also awesome. Make attendance a priority and take detailed notes. Your hand might hurt from writing so much by the end of it but in the end you learn a lot from a really smart guy who is internationally known for his rhetoric research yet he still is pretty humble and nice to us :) also he tells good jokes

Energetic, easy to follow. He tests on his lectures in class, so just take good notes. Tests are not hard and he is interesting to listen to, does great Bill Clinton impressions. Smart guy

his classes are very entertaining. He is a very fun teacher to be with. If you are a fast note taker, it is a very easy class because he gives out tests and essays based on what he says in class. I am an international student so i had to record his lectures and listen to them to take notes but i enjoyed this class very well

Murphy has lectures that are well organized and easy to follow. He himself is just an entertaining guy (although yes, his jokes are bad). If you go class, and attendance is mandatory, so I would, it is a very easy class not only to get a good grade in but to learn something as well. Very much enjoyed, would like to take another class with him.

He is a good teacher, and incredibly knowledgeable! You have to go to class since he takes attendance. His exams are fair but you need to study. He grades papers hard so definitely go in and see him before you write it
