    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I believe that communication is critical in any setting, and practicing on being able to speak publicly is a great tool, and it can only help you later on in life. Almost every career includes communication skills, and that is why it is so important to learn those skills as soon as possible, so you can apply them to more aspects of your life. This class has increased the values of my relationships, and it has increased my confidence in speaking publicly and speaking to a hiring manager, in a job interview.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that communication is pivotal in getting offered a job, and I learned that even when you think you are perfectly content with how you speak publicly, it can never hurt, and it is always good to practice more and learn more about the proper way to get your point across.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think you should absolutely take this course. Like I said, even if you are already a good public speaker, this class will teach you more and enhance your skills ever more. You will come out of this class with more professionalism and more confidence, then when you walked in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had always considered myself a confident public speaker until I spoke my first speech in front of the class. I was so nervous, stumbling over my words and shaking all over. Mrs. Winston taught me how to dismiss the nervous butterflies and speak with confidence. I saw my ability to speak in front of others grow substantially. My professor taught me how body language while giving a speech could be your best friend or lead to an embarrassing performance. The ability to speak in front of others is such an invaluable skill and this course taught me how to do it well. I will use what I learned in this course for years to come, and I recommend it to anyone no matter his or her major.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of the course would have to have been the group project. My professor had the brilliant idea to have each of us take a personality test. Based on our results we were put into groups with others who we were compatible with. My group worked out awesome because of this and we all had a great time working on our projects together outside of class. We got the chance to make up a mock interview for a job of our choosing which we would then perform in front of the class, and also create a presentation on the recent corruption of a company and how to fix it from the standpoint of employees of that company. The group projects vastly improved my team working skills and leadership abilities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course! it will benefit you no matter your major because everyone needs to know how to speak in front of others, so why not become a stud at it? Don't save your speeches and presentations for the night before because the professor, and the rest of the audience will definitely be able to tell.
