    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public Speaking teaches the art of communicating with others and also the art of swaying an audience to take your favor. This skill is highly sought out my employers all over the world. With this skill alone, an individual could make an impact on the world.

    Course highlights:

    Public Speaking helped me grow a thicker skin. Standing in front of peers during speeches, vulnerable of being judged, allowed me to perform under pressure. The course also taught me about ethics. Public speaking is a powerful skill, and with great power comes great responsibility. I learned that to be a good public speaker, I must speak from the heart, but at the same time know the facts from the opinions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My class had the text, "Fundamentals of Speech" by Stephen E. Lucas. I read the assigned chapters before attending each class and this study strategy helped me retain information and prevented me from cramming before exams. I also took good notes from the book. Each quiz/ exam was on based on the text so I would say the content itself is not difficult at all. For speeches, use extraneous notes, which are simple notes to help remind you of topics you need to address during your speech. Apply yourself and give this course 100% of your effort and you'll get more than you bargained for in return.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as well as advice that you put your best efforts in making an A in this class because being a good public speaker/communicator can earn you many friends in the work force/ real world. There are many world leaders who owe their talent of public speaking to their high positions. If you want to influence mass crowds or if you want to change the world, you need to know how to communicate effectively.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to do research on many topics, to defend my cases with strong evidence, and , most importantly, learned to love diversity even more due to the different crowds I speak to.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your textbook in advance (as to with any course), take quality notes, apply speaking tips to your public speaking projects, and own every speech you make :)
