    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this professor because she grades fairly, if not then on the easier side when it comes to speeches and speech outlines. The class is simple enough as long as you remember everything that is due and just do them. There are only four speeches to present and two of them are incredibly fun to make. The exams are simple and are completely based on the reading (which you can skim and you'll be fine). We also play a game in class in order to determine speech order which I find pretty fun. Class is not lecture heavy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to present myself to an audience in a confident and collected manner. I learned to continue on with my speech after a mistake instead of "dropping the ball".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though you don't need to read every single reading, try to because it will make the class a whole lot easier. Also, don't procrastinate on your outlines because it gets really stressful if you do it the night before your speech.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is really energetic and enthused to teach the class about public speaking. She, herself is a great public speaker and does a really good job at teaching the subject and breaking people out of their shells. I recommend her she's super chill too. BTW she gives out little quizzes, make sure to do the readings, although most of the test is about what she talked about the lecture prior, some of the questions come straight from the book.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the actual presentations. I enjoyed them very much. A lot of the students in the class bonded because some of the subjects we came across were sensitive and most of us were able to relate and comfort the person talking. IT was a great experience. I learned that 1. you're not alone and 2. public speaking isn't that bad after the first 30 seconds of the speech.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the readings. I was not able to find the PDF online but i'm pretty sure it is out there, and if worst comes to worst, try getting it from students who have already take the class or try finding it on amazon. Avoid the book store because they spike up the prices pretty heavy.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend students take this course, especially with the professor mentioned because she not only taught the material, but also helped her students grow. Based on my experience, I went into this course very scared because I am a shy person and public speaking was one of my least favorite things to do. However, she made her students feel comfortable and helped them to become better speakers for the outside world as well.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions we would have in class were always interesting. The professor really made us think and take a different perspective on things. I learned that my voice can be very powerful, and it can make a difference by knowing just what to say.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open-mind and be creative. This can be an easy and fun course if you do all your work on time and be prepared to grow as a speaker.
