    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for people afraid of public speaking. It actually makes you more confident and honestly you will grow as a speaker

    Course highlights:

    I think I took away how to properly incorporate narrative techniques in speeches the best. It was the most effective way to make your audience connect to your purpose.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework, and prepare you speech 3 days in advance so you can practice it properly before you present.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has been so much fun. The professor is young and fairly understanding of college life. It also teaches some very important life skills as you will always need to know how to communicate.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new confidence when speaking, and I feel more at ease in formal situations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go for. No matter how foolish something seems, everything you are assigned and asked to do is for a reason. You will learn and grow from every case experience.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Every student has to give several speeches in front of the whole class, which can be a little nerve-wracking. However, this class eases you into it very well with very short and easy presentations in the beginning of the semester and then appropriately ramps up in difficulty, but not too much. There's a big group presentation as a final at the end of the year, but you're given anywhere from 4-6 weeks to prepare for it (depending on whether you're first, last, or somewhere in between). There are also a lot of group assignments that you do during class, so this class also helps you practice certain social skills, if that's important to you (which it should be). Overall you learn a lot about effective communication methods and social skills for group assignments.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were the textbook readings and in-class analysis of logical fallacies. This is because the textbook readings explained many different methods for communicate in a large variety of situations, which is useful in many practical ways in both a workforce and in life in general. Learning about logical fallacies was also interesting because it showed very common forms of logical errors that I have heard many times before and have even used myself; so it was enlightening to learn about these fallacies in order to become a more objective person.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would read the textbook whenever you take a quiz over a chapter. You do not actually need to in order to pass or even 100% a quiz (you could just search for the answers in the book and some of them are common sense), but there is a lot of insight in the book about communicating effectively; and not just for the class, but in almost every scenario. Overall reading the textbook will help you in the class AND (more importantly, in my opinion) help you in many real-life situations.
