    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great way to be able to express oneself in a open environment. It is also good for breaking out of one's shell and becoming more comfortable in more public and social situations. Through the few speeches, you learn to form your on voice and your own opinions . It is a great course for undergrad students that are new to their independence.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite class this semester was public speaking. My teacher was awesome. He was very supportive and invested in the idea of us students sharing our ideas in a very accepting and open environment. I was shy, but at no point did I ever feel intimidated or put down by this class. The teacher encouraged all of us to speak our minds o matter our opinion. In fact, instead of disagreeing with anyone's opinions, he opened the class up to public discussions where each of us got to explain our viewpoints without interruption. We also had a bunch of people from all over the world, so we got to learn about other cultures through the speeches. Outside of the confidence that you gain by doing the speeches, the class' value lies in the other students around you in that you learn so much through their speeches and experiences.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the outlines and the speeches. Don't skip speech days.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course with Ryan. He is an outstanding instructor who integrates pop culture and traditional public speaking. This class has the potential to be very intimidating but Ryan makes it very enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    I love giving speeches but Ryan really challenged me to focus on being very direct when presenting a topic. My most frequent mistake was that I was not explicitly stating my theses. I learned how to maintain my natural flow while also adhering to the academic outline.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be nervous for this course. Pay attention to what you like to hear when listening to any speech and apply it to your own work. Also try to speak using various volumes in order to emphasize the point of your speech. Body language is the biggest secret to this course, even if you are nervous don't let your body show it.
