    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Cas100 is a required course at Penn State, however you have the option to choose a team setting or individual setting. Cas100A is the individual setting. This is a public speaking class which sounds intimidating, but I would rather be in control of my own grade rather than depending on the effort of others to ensure I earn a good grade. And the class is set up to make you feel as comfortable and confident as possible when you go up to speak. You get to know your classmates and there is a general respect for everyone's efforts.

    Course highlights:

    Not a very hard class, several speeches through the semester with a good amount of flexibility in what you wish to speak about. It depends on the professor, but most offer at least one extra credit opportunity which is very helpful. You get to interact with your classmates frequently which gives you a confidence boost when you go up to speak. Despite it being a required gen. ed. I really did get a lot out of the class. By the end of the year I hardly felt nervous and knew how I could effectively keep the attention of my peers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate, this is one course where you absolutely need to give yourself plenty of time to work on your speeches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    During your lifetime, it is likely that at some point you will have to do some sort of public speaking. This course teaches the basic skills and helps make giving speeches less intimidating. Even though you will most likely not end the course as a perfect speaker, I can guarantee that your skills will have greatly improved which is why I highly recommend the course.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I learned the skills that are needed to become a better speaker and how to construct a speech properly. However, I also learned how to build self-confidence through each speech. Along with confidence, the course taught me things about myself that I had never realized. I learned more about myself and who I was as a person with each speech I wrote. Finally, I learned how to connect better with peers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, listen to what your peers and professor tell you after reviewing your initial draft of your speech. This will make for a better final version of the speech. Also, follow along with the readings, this will help you be ready for each lecture. On the two exams given in the course, majority of the information comes from the readings, which is why it is important to keep up with them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    An advice I would give to another student taking this course would be to find a topic you are use to and have enough knowledge to actually talk about.
