    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is essential to a successful and influential career no matter what field you go into. The skills learned in this class will help you to confidently speak with authority and passion about what matters to you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to speak clearly and confidently. People usually think that they are being severely judged when they are speaking in front of an audience but I learned that most of the time this is not the case, that people actually are eager to hear what you have to say. I also learned that when speaking you should speak on topics that you are passionate about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be confident when speaking. Choose topics that interest you and that you can passionately speak about because people can tell if you are not interested in the subject you are portraying. Be prepared to construct four different types of speeches to present and prepare them by starting with a simple yet strong outline.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches students how to format and present an idea by using persuasive and informative techniques.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that being up in front of a group isn't as scary as I thought. Usually, the listeners are kind and willing to hear what you have to say even if you need to take a deep breath.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start out by making your speech outlines simple. If you really want to spice them up do that afterwards but don't try to do too many things at first at once.
