HMRT2003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

HMRT2003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

hmrt1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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

HMRT3123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

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!

hmrt's Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

Intro HMRT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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!

Human Rights Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Often he lost control of the class and "discussions" turned into heated arguments between two students. Further, he shows no compassion for students at all. I fell seriously ill while taking this course, and while he was under instruction by the registrar to allow make up assignments, he refused. My 4.0 GPA was ruined with the C grade he gave me.

Int'l Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

By far the best professor that the University has to offer. Very approachable, friendly and always willing to lend some help and advice. His tests were fair, and although he took attendance it didn't seem as if it really affected my mark even though i didn't always make it to class ;)

All HMRT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the best professors here at STU. Not only is he passionate about the subject, he also cares about his students (especially if they suceed). I would recommend that you take every class you can with him, but don't forget that you do have to work for your mark (GO TO CLASS or bad mark).

Dr. McGowan's passion for the promotion and education of Human Rights is not only noticeable once you take his class, but it is felt. This is a professor that you must take at STU. He creates the environment for critical analysis and fruitful debating.
