    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really helps you improve your public speaking abilities and can really help you learn to lose your anxiety that you may have as a part of it. My specific professor was overwhelmingly supportive and focused on constructive criticism while pointing out positive elements within student's speaking abilities.

    Course highlights:

    I would have to say the major highlight of the course for myself was being able to talk to my professor freely without judgement or any direct negativity, which allowed a more anxious student like myself to feel comfortable in the environment. I felt more comfortable asking questions or for help, as well as in delivering the speech itself. The course itself teaches you how to be more effectively persuasive in your argument that you are making with your speech. It breaks down the whole speech into specific sections you should go over and guidelines for how you should present arguments against the view you are trying to persuade your audience to have.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would personally suggest paying as much attention as possible and never being afraid to ask questions. Don't be afraid to ask for help either! Your professor gets paid to teach you the subject, and you're most likely paying a pretty penny to be in school taking this course, so if you aren't understanding something, ask ask ask!!! Don't be afraid to take on bold/heavily controversial topics, but really make sure that you are going to have enough data and general information on your hands to properly present your argument, especially in the face of opposing views.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class and I really learned a lot about public speaking and all the small stuff that goes with that from this course.

    I loved the speeches. I liked being able to create and prefect each speech for the class. That was my favorite part.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always be ready for your speeches and do your assignments on time. Don't be nervous for the speeches your going to do great if you believe in yourself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the curriculum of the class is very easy to follow. I also would recommend this course because the professor is very clear-cut (specific) to the rules, deadlines, and the overall reasoning behind the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was to learn about how humans talk, and why the talk how they do. I learned quite a few things in this class that I will take along with me to other classes. This class was mainly about giving speeches or presentations with specific topics, specific time lengths, with specific meaning to the students.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read instructions carefully. Do not rush work, put time and effort into work to make it quality that is worth the professors time.
