    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it was an accelerated class, and it counted as a dual credit through my high school. It was a very good class for a short amount of time.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to be able to talk in front of a group of people. I also learned how to properly manage my time to be able to keep up with the accelerated pace and extra homework.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to clear their schedule for the two weeks that this class takes. It will take up a majority of your time, and it requires a lot of outside work. I would tell them not to take this course unless they are ready to put the time in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very informative on the distinct types of speech that are involved in public speaking. It’s useful if you are giving a presentation of any kind, including in the areas of company meetings, political events, and every day rhetoric.

    Course highlights:

    This course was rigorous in that it emphasized key concepts of citations, historical perspectives, and behavioral adaptations to speech style. Getting it right is what counts and the performance will come naturally when put into practice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into this course with the passion of speech, and you will have it easy. Otherwise, take everything the professor says to heart. Learn exactly what the expectations are, and be sure to practice your speeches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has definitely helped me with my speaking abilities. You give quite a few presentations and learn how to do personal speaking in a public space.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being able to get more comfortable with speaking and learning about the other class members. I learned a lot about not only communication, but also, myself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE SYLLABUS!! You will get lectured about it many times if you don't (and even if you do). Also, realize everyone is kind of uncomfortable and awkward with speaking in front of the class. Just be yourself and talk about what you want to talk about.
