    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Athearne makes the course fun. Coming from someone who feared public speaking, she was able to make public speaking manageable and something anyone can succeed at.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, I learned how to speak in front of a classroom of people. In addition, I also learned how to construct a speech based on the psychological and behavioral aspect of the individual and audience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend students read the material in the textbook in time with the class. Not only are the lectures based on information pulled straight from the textbook, but there also were occasional pop quizzes so one must always be prepared for the assignments,

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course draws in what many would consider easy or simple. Thus, it usually finds its way into the schedules of students with very packed schedules. The teachers of this course are liable to grade of a strict rubric, heavily limiting creativity and ingenuity in one's speeches.

    Course highlights:

    This course did show me how to better make use of verbal cues and how to regulate body language. It allowed me to practice public oration so as to build my confidence in the future.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should be careful of this class and if they do wish to take it, must be ready to follow the rubric's presented to the letter.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because speaking is something that everyone should be comfortable with. It is not easy for most people to speak in front of others and it is a valuable life skill.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to speak properly in front of an audience. It taught me to prepare for speeches in ways that I would not have thought of.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To prepare for your speeches. Practice your speeches ahead of time and don't try to do them unprepared.
