    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Lots of talking, it is a oral communications class. It meets only once a week so it is very important to attend. Even if it is not your turn to do a speech, you may be required to grade another persons speech for credit.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the more interested you are in your speech topic, the better the speech is. You put more effort into since you genuinely want to get your points across. Visual aids and slides shows are a major plus.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to choose topics you love and practice them. Make sure you know how long the speeches need to be and stay in that time frame. This professor is not afraid to cut you off short if you take too much time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great course for those who are caught up to college English standards. Its a course where communication is key to help gather ideas for essays. Those who do not remember high school grammar may not be able to keep up.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the in class discussions on the reading topics. I feel talking about them helped bring out points in the reading that didn't occur while reading.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep up on the reading. You may be able to get away with not reading and getting through the in class discussions, but the readings are vital to your essays. Make sure you have plenty of examples to pull from.
