    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an essential class to the college experience! You learn so much on how to organize your thoughts and processes so that you can present them in a clear and professional manner to others.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about speech organization and delivery. My favorite part was actually delivering the material that I had to prepare and present to my audience. I feel as though not only was I learning a lot, but I felt that there was important information that I was able to share with the people around me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Research, take notes, organize your thoughts and practice your speech! As with anything else, practice makes perfect.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    this course enhanced my public speaking skills so I am able to effectively speak in front of groups of people or present in front of a class which I was not ale to do very well before!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course were the different videos we would watch in order to see good and bad examples of how people public speak.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice giving speeches in front of people multiple times before performing in front of the class because it will really help improve your confidence.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought I knew everything about what it was like to speak in front of an audience. This course told me how difficult public speaking is but at the same time the course showed me how important it is. Having public speaking skills can make or break your career and I feel that this course put me on the right path towards my own.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Henson was a major highlight as he always brought life to the course. Henson was a very realistic professor who would tell you exactly how you're doing without sugar-coating the performance. But he was also very understanding and humorous and I think it provided a perfect balance for the class. Overall, I learned that public speaking isn't about speaking like a robot in front of a screen or talking like a stand-up comedian, it's really about fully understanding what you're presenting to the audience and having a speaking outline memorized in your head.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Having the right professor really is so important for this class but that shouldn't be the deciding factor in taking the course. You learn valuable life lessons and make many personal improvements throughout the course so it should definitely be considered.
