    Get your work done early. It's better to start working on your assignments well before they are due in case something comes up like getting sick or in case it is more difficult than it looked.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an excellent course that greatly improved my personal public speaking skills. It is not always easy to present a speech successfully in front of a large audience, but I can honestly say that it was extremely helpful to practice speaking in front of others in a classroom setting. After coming to class for a couple of weeks, the atmosphere became more comfortable and it was easier to give a speech and receive criticism from the professor after I became more familiar with her and my fellow classmates. If you take this course seriously, you are guaranteed to learn a lot of helpful things that will boost you in your endeavors, whether they be career-wise or not. Professor Berumen was very kind, helpful, and clear about the course objectives. She was very organized and was always willing to provide help or advice when needed.

    Course highlights:

    One main highlight of this course was listening to the speeches of my fellow classmates! It was quite interesting to see how everyone had their own quirks and qualities about them that made their speeches unique. I was able to take what I learned from each of them and apply it to my own presentations. I also liked how we gave different types of speeches throughout the course. We were all required to give an introductory, informative, tribute, and persuasive speech. Before we presented each of our speeches, we learned what techniques and skills were important to use in order to make them more convincing and effective. Taking this class, though it was not necessarily easy, was a huge confidence builder. I recognized the potential I had to create and present an entertaining, riveting speech. I am now much more confident when it comes to presentations in classes I am currently taking, because I can utilize those skills I acquired in my public speaking class!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest that if you are to take this class, you don't take it lightly. If you truly have the desire to become a better public speaker, you will learn to become one if you simply apply yourself. Self-discipline is a quality that will come in handy in taking this class. Do your research, put time and heart into it, and you will get an A.
