    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class because it can be embarrassing going up in front of the whole class and saying a speech that you had to come up with because your professor told you to do.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was that you get out of your comfort zone. What I learned was that its not that bad going in front of a class of complete strangers and talk to them or say a speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    What you need to do to succeed in this course is doing the work ahead of time and prepare yourself before you go up and present it. If you don't prepare yourself then you will get nervous and won't do as you expect.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I suggest that all freshman take Speech 101 in their very first semester. Not only does it get the class out of the way, but it's one of the few courses that actually helps prepare you for your other classes. It teaches you how to deliver a speech concisely and accurately which you will have to do in several other courses, as well helps prepare you for the essay style and format that college professors expect from their students.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing that I learned from this course was methods in which to deal with my anxiety over public speaking. The professor taught us many calming and focusing techniques that helped me in several of my later classes in which I had to give oral presentations. Also, the professor taught in a way that utilized many different learning styles, such as verbal lectures, visual power points, and reading assignments. It made the course very comprehensive. It is also a great way to express what you are passionate about, seeing that you get to pick your own speech topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone considering this course is to remain calm. Though the thought of public speaking can seem daunting and uncomfortable, the class really does help calm those nerves by not only getting you practice in a emotionally safe environment, but also by teaching reliable methods of mental self preparation which you can take with you into all other aspects of your college careers and life.
