    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually try to get better, he gives you all the tools, he only gets frustrated when you don't attempt to better yourself.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is good for anyone that still needs this general education credit. Not only is it good for that, but this class also helps anyone who may have an issue with speaking in front of a group, as it will force them to talk to the entire class. The professor does quite well and she makes sure that you know exactly what you're doing and will explain anything you do not fully understand. She gives fair and accurate critiques on speeches without coming off as harsh and she does encourage you to do better and improve.

    Course highlights:

    In the course, you will learn about the ends and out of public speaking and come to understand the jargon that comes along with that field. The class focuses on extemporaneous speeches, which are speeches that you practice but not to the point of memorization. In this class, you will go over a few main types of speeches, namely: informative, persuasive, and demonstrative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to make sure that you practice your speeches before you present them and make sure that you follow all her instructions on the way that the speech is meant to be structured and the length of the speech.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was overall very simple and straightforward. She is very harsh with grading and requirements but if you take your time with the speeches it takes about two weeks (*depending on your class days) to get through them all.

    Course highlights:

    You honestly don't learn much from this. Public speaking is obviously very simple in what to do however she is very over the top with it all, you have to rent a small textbook and take it to class. She also has you read the chapters in the book for quizzes but we only had one "quiz."

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow the syllabus exactly as it says and ask her to clarify somethings on the syllabus because it can be very ambiguous. When asking her, bring her the syllabus so she knows you read it, otherwise she'll tell you to look at the syllabus. get on her good side by telling her to "have a good day" at the end of class and turn everything in on time, she with either deduct half or not accept late work.
