    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend this course, it was great. The first day everything is kind of uncomfortable if you are nervous to speak in front of strangers, but by the end of the course you will be so comfortable you will WANT to do your speech first (that's how it was for me at least!!). The professor is very helpful and gives you feedback on your essay which is nice for future speeches.

    Course highlights:

    As cliché as this sounds I learned to be more confident in myself. I knew what I was talking about when I got up to do my speech it was just whether or not I could do it without fear of stuttering or losing my place on my notecards. While this did happen a few times it was no big deal. I learned how to make eye contact with crowds. It really makes a difference to look at the people you are talking to during a speech. Also the prof is full of knowledge so you will probably learn a bunch of cool stories from him as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the speech you are supposed to do. They are not hard and are actually very interesting. Go to class, other students present their speeches and you can learn a ton out of them, it really fun actually. Don't do your speech the night before class because you will have to stay up all night perfecting it and making sure it is the correct time length (yes speeches are timed). Pretty much do what you would do in any class. Have fun and be unique with speeches and you will do great!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Introduction to Effective Public Speaking, SPE 100, is a great course for all students to gain basic skills in giving presentations or public speaking--something all college students will do and something most are afraid of. The course explores various mediums and skills of speaking in addition to methods to reduce fears and calm nerves related to presenting to peers, authoritative figures, or publicly.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to confidently present to all audiences. Additionally, I am now able to give speeches in all subject areas, with a variety of different goals or purposes. I am properly equipped with the tools to do effective research and am able to speak publicly with reduced or no anxiety related to it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice your speeches! Have a well-developed or professional-looking visual aid so you appear like you know what you're talking about, at the very least.
