PL3100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

dr morris is the worst prof that i have had at rockhurst university. the tests and quizzes are basically the same every year, so if you can find some of the old ones, you're in luck. the worst part are the essays. grades like an SoB so good luck if you're in his class. if i had a do-over, id transfer out.

PL1150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I have never had a teacher that I felt wasted my time more. This class was pointless. Dr. Morris spends his class periods telling pointless examples and irrelevant stories. He thinks he's the funniest person alive. He isn't helpful. If you don't write his exact words from lecture or the power point on your test, you fail. Worst teacher I've had

PL 1100 LCB Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

Very nice. most of the quiz and testes are easy. At times he's not clear, but if you ask him to explain he will. Makes you go to SIs but Maggie is supper helpful. There's two papers you have to write in there which he grades crazy hard, but if you study the power points and remember the examples he uses youll get a A or a high B

Before this class I hated philosophy, it just never interested me. After this class however I really started to enjoy it. This was a very good class that challenged me in a good way and Dr. Morris is an excellent professor, I highly recommend any of his classes

Dr. Morris knows he is smart, which makes class educational, but not easy to listen to. For an entry level philosophy class, I put into the effort for a 4000 class. Wants perfect essays, papers, and has an obscured perfectionist grading scale. Powerpoints is info for test, but you have to be able to connect all ideas perfectly or else automatic B.

PL4570 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I will be going to law school in the next few years so I took Philosophy of Law and it's terrible. I'm not afraid of hard work and I put a great deal of effort into this class and Morris doesn't care. He has made up his mind that most people will get a B regardless of effort. I have never worked so hard to have my efforts totally unrewarded.

PL4700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Morris is a card carrying conservative Catholic rhetoric professor. Most of his class is about regurgitating his own rhetoric back to him in essay format. If you are pro-life, anti euthanasia, and anti stem cell research take this class. If not, STAY AWAY. He is one sided and does not want any other view presented aside from his.

A good teacher but grades very tough. He wants perfection in his essays with limited time to write them.

Dr. Morris is one of my favorite teachers at Rockhurst! He's interesting, even to someone not real into philosophy. He's really helpful, and provides his powerpoints, review sheets, and study guides online. You don't even need to take notes, you can just use his powerpoint and add comments.

PS3000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Morris is one of the few teachers who I would say is actually unfair. He is bright, the problem is he knows it. He rambles boringly, grades too tough, and is not a likeable man.

Philosophy has always been hard fo rme and even i thought that he did an exceptionally good job at explaining it. He is very clear, and doesn't try to trick you in any way.

Quizzes and tests come straight from the powerpoint presentations. Hardest part is putting information together to write essays. Get a group together and can be finished in a few hours answering test review questions.
