    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I love this class! The teacher Ms. French is super nice and your classmates are exceptionally nice people. The class is well taught and never a dull moment. It goes into depth about speeches and is great if you are going into a career related to economy or business.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about myself and how to give the proper speech. You get to see how well you are or think you are at giving a speech and improve on it. It's not a hard class, but you do need to put in effort for the class. As you learn about the balances and contents of a proper speech, you are also learning how to give the proper speech in front of people. Which teaches you if you are or aren't the right person for giving mass speeches to hundreds of people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be on top of your work. Don't fall behind, it's not hard to catch up, but you'll be wishing all the work you're doing last minute you've done the night/days before. There isn't anything else this class necessarily requires. Also always make friends in the class it will help you.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Whether you already enjoy public speaking or are the shy one in the class who avoids eye contact because you know it will lead to conversation, this communications course allows for everyone to get out of their comfort zone and experience communicating with others in a new light. Through moral support from your peers and encouragement from your professor, you will truly shine as a speaker and will achieve great communication skills which might be useful in the future.

    Course highlights:

    Viewing myself grow as a communicator was truly a highlight because I remember starting the course and rarely jumping into a conversation and how I was the one starting the conversation at the end of the semester! I learned that by taking risks you will see yourself develop into something you never knew was possible.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Being nervous or anxious is normal for most students especially when starting off, however don't let it control you all the time. Be confident in yourself and your ability to communicate properly!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Communications 101 was able to greatly supply me with public speaking skills- something that most people fear to their core. Professor French was able to cultivate a creative, encouraging, and very vibrant experience for my peers and I through lessons plans that made us eager to actually learn more. Although speaking in front of people you don't know can be very intimidating, French gave us the tools to learn from our mistakes through group readings and confidence exercises which can really be used in any other form of everyday communication.

    Course highlights:

    Although I was very nervous to take this course at first, I came to the realization that there were more positives to my hard work than negatives. There was never any kind of busy work and every single assignment had a bigger purpose. One of my favorite parts of this class was being challenged to come up with speeches in such a small time frame. French had us throw away the idea of constantly writing things down word for word, and wanted us actually understand and feel passionate towards the content we were supposed to be focused on. This helped me draw persecutive into some of my other classes, helping me get group projects done in other classes in a timely manner. Not only did I learn about the core aspects of constructing a speech, but I learned how your physicality plays a big part in creating your image and how you want your audience to not only view, but see your words.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although I had a number of classmates who would not study for this class, I found that taking notes from the given text book was extremely helpful when going over them the next day during lessons in class. Making sure to not procrastinate on research was also very important because being able to actually practice your speech for more than a day was key to having a successful reading in the classroom.
