    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Schrader is very encouraging, and works with her students in order to give them the best experience possible! She uses a variety of mediums in the classroom to suit as many students' learning styles as possible. She offers two types of public speaking courses, the regular course, and another course that has one less speech but another paper focusing on rhetoric. This separation gives students the chance to pick the course where they think they will be the most comfortable, and they might surprise themselves!

    Course highlights:

    As someone who dreaded taking a public speaking course, I was absolutely surprised with how well this course turned out for myself. Not only was I able to learn the tips and tricks of public speaking in a controlled environment, I also was able to develop my scholarship opportunities as well. Based on my performance in one of the class papers, Dr. Schrader suggested that I apply for a communications conference. This extra opportunity helped to build my confidence and was the highlight of my first academic year at Penn state. Although that specific opportunity was not available to everyone, there were many opportunities for students to present their work on campus that Dr Schrader outlined to the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always try to come to class with the right mindset. Half of the battle for many people who fear public speaking is getting the nerve to get started. Once that hurdle is overcome, speaking in public will become easier and easier as you progress.
