    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Being able to communicate specific information is a very important skill to have in order to succeed in many careers. This course provided knowledge of how to present a speech with specific and credible information, allowing the audience to learn something new about an interesting topic in five to seven minutes. Before I took this course, I did not know how to speak extemporaneously, but by the end of the semester, I was able to do it effortlessly.

    Course highlights:

    One lesson that I enjoyed in the class was learning how to find specific and credible information to support my presentation. My professor gave many tips on how to find information quickly and effectively which I found helpful when researching speeches throughout the semester. My professor was also easy to listen to and kept the discussion very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are assigned a speech, make sure to start preparing at least a week before your presentation is due so that you will have time to practice what you are going to say. This will ensure your presentation is smooth and easy to understand. This class can be enjoyable, if you put in the effort.

    Dr. Heflin is a very enthusiastic teacher. He has a great passion for his field. He helps you to get out of your comfort zone to speak with authority and clarity.

    Like every class, it is important to come throughly prepared. Be supportive of your classmates during their speeches so they will be supportive of your speeches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If someone were to chose to take a speech class, I would recommend taking it with Dr. Brad McCoy. He has a sense of humor which makes class interesting and he is pretty easy going when it comes to grading speeches in class, which is very nerve racking to begin with. He gives good information on the criteria you need to know to be able to pass the exams and he gives good feed back on not only speeches, but the exams as well.

    Course highlights:

    I can not say that I conquered a fear of public speaking. It may have been easier if I was not being graded on the things that I was saying. But I did learn how to write and effective speech and I learned much more about public speaking than I intended to. Although I am not particularly great at speaking in front of people in a class room, I feel like that was the biggest highlight of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to succeed in Dr. Brad McCoys speech class, it is vital that you study your notes and have speeches prepared a week in advance and have it down to an art by the time speech day comes. It is also vital that you stay on topic on your speech he is easy going on the introductory course but he is also trying to relay important information and likes for it to be treated as such.
