    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed preparing speeches about topics that I am passionate to study. Dr. Heflin definitely called out students in class, but this helped me to be more confident in speaking in front of my peers. In today's society, learning how to articulate well is important to individual success.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Research heavily throughout your assignments and be willing to let go of your nerves of public speaking.
