    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I've always been terrified of public speaking so when I found out that I would have to take this course, it seemed much like a nightmare. I felt as though I would leave with an even more intense dislike of speaking publicly, however I left the class with a sigh f relief and an A in the bag. The professor made the atmosphere so easy to relax that even when I felt nerves, I was able to brush it off and breeze through my speeches. It was one of the classes I took as a first year, and to this day, it's marked as one of my favorite classes ever.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the professor. I don't think I would have done as well as I did if it wasn't for how comfortable he made me and everyone else in the class feel.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that students take this course regardless of what their major is. Everyone should learn how to be adept at public speaking. It may not be put to use constantly, but it's better to know what to do when encountered with a situation in which you have to speak in front of a crowd, than to end up floundering.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course! Although Stanley is a hard grader, she means well. I have progressed as a speaker greatly while in this course, and I've noticed a confidence boost. Other friends of mine took it with other professors, and they are still shy (and not very good at speaking). She is the best to make you work hard and actually learn something.

    Course highlights:

    I liked that she let us work with other students. Taking aspects of how other people speak is crucial, but you don't want to do this too often. If you do, your speeches won't be original and you'll look ridiculous.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate on your speeches. Definitely start on them when she assigns them, because it's hard to write a speech and practice it when you've procrastinated, I know from experience.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it has made me more comfortable speaking in front of others.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a correct manuscript and to speak it confidently.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practicing your speech ahead of time will result in you being much more confident when you are standing in front of your peers.
