    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class to prepare you for public speaking. Professor Sutton is a great educator and is very supportive of his students. He creates a comfortable environment that enables you to put your best foot forward and nearly eliminates any stress related to talking in front of a group of people. I highly recommend this class, and even more so, this instructor!

    Course highlights:

    We started off doing group presentations to build confidence, and then slowly tapered off to doing presentations on our own. I was able to build confidence in public speaking, and learned the fundamentals on to how to successfully build a presentation, and present it in front of a group of people.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the instructor, follow his tips, and remember that you are all in this together.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor! Returns emails very quickly with helpful information and is super nice.

    Course highlights:

    Listening to all the interesting and funny speeches given by fellow classmates. I learned how to be a better public speaker.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She lets you talk about whatever you want, just make sure it's appropriate. I felt more comfortable speaking about things that interest me, therefore making me more comfortable at the podium.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very good paced class, prompt to scheduled syllabus, constructive criticism is always offered after assignments or speeches, professor gives extra credit for outside-of-class activities, hard not to pass honestly

    Course highlights:

    Professor does random class activities for things such as getting comfortable with your classmates so that speeches are less uncomfortable, extra credit opportunities that actually somewhat tie into what the upcoming lesson is on, etc. Creative & fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate on practicing outlines for speeches. Everything is laid out on the given outlines, which is easy to study from just by doing a few dry runs.
