    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was really nice, you get to explore the different areas in public speaking. The book that I studied had very good description of terms, it even had some graphics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of things. The most important was to make eye contact with the audience, I would look up a lot of times to try to remember something. I correct my error thanks to this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's very challenging, this course made me grow even when I didn't want to in this area specifically. You never know maybe one day we will have to use the communication skills that we learned, and maybe not to a great scale but at a family reunion, small meeting or at work.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because both the course and instructor prepare you for future college courses. Professor Gallagher teaches you how to turn a speech or simple communication between someone into art.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to give a informative speech which was recorded and given back to me. I also learned that every attempt at communication can be broken down into simple rules like collaborating with someone so that both parties become victorious in the event of conflict. I will be able to use the skills I learned in COMM 265g throughout the rest of my college experience because we use communication on a daily basis.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To complete this course you need to pay close attention to the extra materials that the instructor supplies, but the book also supplies plenty of interesting and informative information. Interacting and responding to other individuals in the class will help with any speech fright you may have. Also the questions your interacting with will prepare you for future speeches that are going to be a must in college.
