Professor Simmons is knowledgable and seems to enjoy teaching. He did seem to focus disproportionally on International Relations for an introductory overview of political science. Also, he is somewhat forgetful. Course work consists of a term paper and two written exams. It's not a blow off class, …more but he is a somewhat easy grader. less

He's very interested in what he teaches (political science) but I could not understand or stay awake through most of the classes, because he talked and rambeled and preached A LOT. Not my type of teaching. May work for others.

Extremely knowledgable, published professor whose teaching style is straight lecture with open forum. Laid back grading style, limited in class work, and a number of interesting videos through out semester.

Very knowledgeable and experienced professor. His classroom teaching style is laissez-faire, which is a nice shift from the eccentric style at KSB. Course work is not demanding and he respects the opinions of his students. Open topic lectures, straight forward exams, and a moderate amount of …more writing assignments. Thumbs up for Professor Simmons. less

The class i enrolled in was supposed to be centered around United States Government. However, the majority of the subject matter covered in class is related to foreign affairs, not government. He gets off topic many times and covers things that are not very relavent. After taking the class, I am …more not sure I learned what I was suppose to. less

This professor was terrible. He taught my politics and terrorism class. There was no lesson plan. I was confused about what I actually needed to learn the entire semester. To do well on the tests all you have to do is regurgitate what he rambles on about in class. He also retells stories over and …more over again about important people he has met. less
