    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself is very easy. As long as you take each speech carefully, you'll pass.

    Course highlights:

    I loved how involved the teacher was. Even after I had given a speech, he'd go back and ask me questions on what I talked about.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always write your speeches well. Never take them as a joke. As long as you do very well on them, you'll easily pass the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kinkead is friendly and helpful! He makes speech giving less nerve wracking! He can really lay out how to write in a way that's easy to present and really decreases the stress surrounding speech making.

    Course highlights:

    Fundamentals of speech really helps you get your feet under you before you have a ton of speeches and read-aloud essays. It helps you compose in a manner easy to read and can help you get over stage fright!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't freak out! Speech making can be scary, but if you make friends in the class, act like you're talking to just them and it helps keep you calm.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am beginning my senior year at DSC, and this is still one of my favorite courses. The professor made this class entertaining and fun.

    Course highlights:

    I am not a public speaker, however, the professor made me feel comfortable during our presentations. After I made it through our first speech I was not nervous for the next two we had during the semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the practice midterm/final. Some of these questions are straight from the real tests. I glanced over the midterm one, and did not make the grade I wanted on the exam. I also realized that a lot of the questions came from the practice tests. For final, I decided to do the practice test and study the questions and answers. I made and A on the final exam! Also, choose topics that interest you for your speeches. Standing in front of a room and speaking about something you don't truly care about can be noticeable. Good Luck!
