Amazing prof, objective, uncompromising in his willingness to challenge the ideological status quo. McGowan is probably one of the best educated profs at STU as well as one of the most approachable. Highly recommended, an easy A and an amazing course.

Amazing prof. Very enthusiastic about human rights and absolutely inspiring. Lawyer-Priest. You must attend class. His exams are tricky, but he tells you exactly what to study. Papers aren't too bad, so long as you know your stuff. Class discussions were fabulous. Very compassionate and easy to approach outside of class.

The first few class I took with him were great, then I noticed some interesting things. He hits himself in the head with remotes and goes on and on about human dignity. Also, I AM NOT GOING TO THROW UP FROM WATCHING MOVIES... you don't have to remind me of this everytime we watch one. Okay person, but can be too enthusiastic

McGowan is quite possibly the best professor I've ever taken at STU. I'm taking a 3rd, possibly 4th class with him. Go to class and pay attention and he'll appreciate you. Hand in your work on time. He asks a lot sometimes, but he looks for quality in your work and he finds it easily, as long as you know your stuff. I would recommend him to anyone.

The best, most understanding Prof you can ever encounter at STU who knows his stuff inside out.

OK folks. This guy is quite possibly one of the most interesting profs you will ever take. Go to class, do your work on time, and study what he tells you to study. You will get a good mark guaranteed. Take a course at any chance you get with him!

I have had Dr. McGowan for 3 classes now. He is a great professor, but is a little tough on exams and tests. The papers are really easy as long as you know what you're talking about. He has no patience for people who don't go to class though. The class can drag on, but he outlines everything so you know what is coming. Great prof!

He is very dull and boring. He foams at the corners of the mouth when talking in class, and he marks very hard on papers, he will pick everything apart. The readings are very boring and classes are even more boring.

Explains everything really well. Very helpful and he understands if your printer isn't working once in a blue moon. Not a hard class, but not easy either, you definitly have to work for your mark, but this forces you to learn. Extremely (sometimes too much) passionate about his work. If you have the chance, take him as a prof!
