Very slow with grades and assignments. Have taken several of his courses and maybe he is just unorganized or too busy but very frustrating.

I have taken 2 classes with this teacher. Only been @ VSU 2 semesters. I truly admire the way he teachers. Straight to the point. He assigns papers vs giving tests.Puts outline of notes online which helps a lot in doing the pprs. He will work with you but doesn't tolerate slacking. Def an easy teacher overall as long as you put in the work

You only write papers and he is very lenient on grading! Great teacher. Never have to worry about Friday because he cancels them, opting instaed for you to answer a discussion post online

You only write papers and he is very lenient on grading, especially on the first 2 paper. He takes attendance sometimes and he cancels his Friday classes. Great teacher. He speaks his mind and doesn't care what he says. I love taking his classes. He has very relaxed teaching style.

Great teacher. Great personality, great attitude! He is always willing to help. Too bad all professors aren't like him! I will truly miss him.

I am not a Sociology major or a Criminal Justice major, so I took this class as an elective. I am so glad I did! He is an excellent professor with a great sense of humor who loves his job and enjoys really getting to know his students. He uses four papers instead of exams, which he grades fairly. Take him if at all possible. Great guy!

Love this professor, I take all of his classes. His classes aren't difficult even though you have to write papers. He teaches really well even though he loves to rag on all of his students. He's a great guy and really connects with everyone...he's a genius but you'd never know by talking to him because he really gets on our level. Great prof.

This is THE best professor in the CJ department. He is very knowledgeable and actually has CJ experience unlike many of the other prof. Fair to ALL students and willing to help. Tests and papers not too difficult. Must take his classes...grad and undergrad!

Dr. Knowles is hilarious. At first you wont like him, but give him a week or so and you'll be cracking up. He is very outspoken. His tests are all take home essays. Lecture can drag at times but you have to take him. Well worth it!
