    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public Speaking is one of the top fears people have. Community colleges in the state of New York are now requiring that all associate degree programs complete a public speaking course. This course was so helpful in overcoming fears and becoming comfortable in a public speaking situation.

    Course highlights:

    Helpful tips in order to overcome the fear of public speaking were constantly being taught during this course. Different types of speeches and different ways to deliver an interesting and captivating speech were all essential to this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance to class is very important. Also coming to class with a nice appearance helps, you will be doing a lot of presenting. Practicing your speeches before presenting helps a lot too. Remember, everyone else is just as nervous as you!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I do not like public speaking, but nonetheless it is a required course. My professor was very nice and understanding of those that did not like to speak in front of large groups. We had multiple projects, none too hard, but having the 4 month course condensed into 1 month put a strain on many students I talked to.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned how to enunciate and how to project my voice. Before this course, I had never spoken to a large group. But with this professor's engaged and passionate teaching style, I learned a lot more in this class than I thought I would. Speech patterns, effective speech writing and body language were new skills I had picked up from this course.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In all honesty, take deep breathes and think happy thoughts. I know it sounds cliche, but it really does work. Once you improve your writing and actually feel confident about yourself and your speech, no matter what anyone's face says while you're talking matters. Making every speech as funny as you can also really helps; I did that and it loosened up the audience to the point where it was casual relationship where I didn't feel judged.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In this class, you will be forced to look for information and synthesize coherent arguments, as well as hone your speaking skills. You will gain confidence in your abilities as the semester progresses and your mind will be challenged.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the final speech. It was annoying in that it was a bit of an imposition to find two people to bring to the school late one night, but once you were there it was a pretty big moment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're taking this course, it is probably a requirement for your degree. With that said, it is a course that you will benefit from. I liked it, probably because I was already a decent speaker before taking it. However, I would encourage anyone taking the course to just relax before speeches; the best thing you can do is to practice your speeches often so that you are less nervous when the real thing happens.
