    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend this course to anyone who feels like they might have a hard time with public speaking. Professor Sandoval made sure all students were included, and taught very informative lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more critical thinking skills, and how to overcome my fear of speaking in front of others. There is no denying it was hard in the beginning, but what I learned in this course will stay with me for a very long time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind when it comes to speaking in this course. Most of the time, it's all in your head.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course, and I think the teacher really made it special. I was nervous about giving speeches, but Prof. Braaten made the process seem less intimidating. He also fostered an open and honest classroom environment and allowed us to have discussions that, while sometimes discussing emotionally charged topics, always remained respectful and never became argumentative. The class overall grew together and was very supportive. One of the few college classes I want to take again.

    Course highlights:

    I became a much better speaker through the use of a carefully planned speech outline. I learned to choose a topic relevant to the audience and present my views convincingly. I also became better at using visual aids, and body language, to make my speeches more interesting. I have actually used a lot of the stuff I've learned outside the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be willing to prepare beforehand. Prof. Braaten is not tough but neither is he willing to pass a slacker just because. He is a very fair grader, so as long as you put forth the effort to prepare and rehearse your speech beforehand, you will get a good grade. Also -be willing to participate, it's just so much more fun!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone. Although public speaking is the number one fear in the U.S., this class really steps you through it. Ms. Andersen is funny and helps you through every step of the way and allows for great feedback opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the course would be the great feedback opportunities, the great examples shared, and the ability to feel comfortable speaking publically after just three speeches.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students considering this course to use the public speaking anxiety and channel it into energy to deliver your speech. Know that the class will help you in any career path you choose.
