Meet the Professor

R.C. Morris, PhD
Professor of Sociology
rcmorris@weber.edu

Hi, my name is Dr. R.C. Morris. I am a professor of Sociology at Weber State University. I joined WSU faculty in 2017. I teach the Criminology emphasis in the Sociology program covering topics like Life-Course Criminology, Research Methods, Ethics, as well as Intro to Sociology and Social Problems. I earned my doctorate in Social Psychological Criminology from the Sociology Department at Purdue University in 2014.

I love teaching and I also love to travel! I am excited to provide this faculty led course. During this study abroad program we cover lots of ground, including: the foundations for government representing people, origins of social theory, international justice, and more.

When I am not teaching, doing research, or in a meeting on campus I am spending time with my spouse and four children, likely hiking or mountain biking. You might also occasionally find me on a golf course. 🙂
