    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a fantastic course that helped get over the fear of speaking to large groups of people. With the small class size and welcoming environment, I was able to develop my skills as a public speaker.

    Course highlights:

    In this course we learned proper strategies of public speaking, ways of coping with stage fright, and just plain practice in front of a crowd.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, if you just do the work it's relatively easy and smooth sailing.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Public Speaking is a requirement at BCC regardless of the degree, most kids dread this class. If you look at it from a learning perspective, it prepares you for interviews or board reviews. Do dismiss the opportunity to get use to "the attention" because someday you will need the skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to be thorough and explain things nicely. I've curved my habit, to a degree, of using the filler words um, uh, and and. I think that had made me sound more professional in my communications with others.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Its is a requirement, so don't save it till the last semester because you can use the skills to be accepted into the internship, land an job before graduation, or get into that masters program you really want.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It gives you a very good reinforcement of how to establish and reinforce ideas and to be able to convey those ideas to your target audience whoever that may be.

    Course highlights:

    This was informative on many levels there were times where it did seem to drag a bit, but thats to be expected from any writing class, we can agree right? Establishing a critical thought and conveying it to any audience is learned through several different research papers as well as presenting them in a public speaking format. Think as though you were running for public office and you were enlisted to give a speech on policy reform. Typically this subject is a rather dry subject to cover and go over. Therefore you'd not only run the task of trying to convey your ideas across, but also you would need to be able to do so in such a way that you don't lose your audience to boredom or overwhelming emphasis on larger words.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be diligent and thorough. Don't skimp out on sources and or give vague responses.
