    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Speech is a course you have take no matter your major but professor Sparks made it easy for the students. We were relaxed, calm and reminded that we are all the same, and that the classroom is a judge-free environment. Everyone passed with A's & B's.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to make eye contact with the audience as much as possible so they will feel as if you're speaking directly to them. I also learned if I mess up, take a deep breathe, smile, and resume with my speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's not as bad as you think. We had two group speeches and one individual speech. The individual speech was at least seven minutes but almost everyone went over. It will be over before you know it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The profferssor was extremely interactive and was passionate about the study of communication. She made sure everyone understood, and kept the notes breif so we could pay attention to the lecture instead of scramble to take down notes.

    Course highlights:

    The professor covered a range of topics including: popular philosophers, logos, pathos, and ethos. We also learnt about the common cycle of relationships and how communication varies throughout that cycle. Not only did I learn about the subjects in the lecture, I gained experience with working in groups, public speaking, and solo presentations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you read the book thoroughly and study the lecture notes for a test, you should do just fine. There are a few questions on the test that get very involved, but most are straightforward and refer to either the book or the notes. Professor Kelley also has quizzes on just notes and videos that were shown in class. Attendance is a must if you want to succeed in this course. You do not need prior knowledge coming into the course, the professor thoroughly covers every topic and makes notes easy to remember and copy down.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Not everyone enjoys talking to a crowd or even a small circle of friends or family. Taking Speech 100 will help you understand communicating is not hard and can be done confidently with practice.

    Course highlights:

    You will definitely not be able to hide taking this class. Everyone has to present a topic and speak about it. Once you start talking you become relaxed and naturally everything gets easier after your first presentation!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are shy, by the end of the semester you will have more confidence! Be prepared to have debates and the opportunity to speak on things that matter to you!
