    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hodgson does an outstanding job of explaining such a difficult concept. I've learned a lot in his class about public speaking. I never realized how much I was doing wrong in terms of public speaking and professor Hodgson really helped me improve over the course of each speech.

    Course highlights:

    Public Speaking is basically self explanatory because we learned about improving our speaking skills. To get into the specifics we learned how to organize and deliver speeches. We also learned how to use hand gestures in our speech and how they can help our speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class. Professor Hodgson goes over a lot of information and we spent a majority of that time going over speeches to get feedback. I would also recommend picking topics that are interesting to you and not just easy. I've found it much easier to talk about something that interests you, but requires more research than having to talk for 5 to 7 minutes about a boring but easy topic to research.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The assignments in this class are mostly just busywork. It's an easy A if you just do all the work. Final is only 10% of your grade.

    Course highlights:

    Definitely eases anxiety about public speaking because the more you do it, the easier it gets.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest just doing all the work assigned. Also, for all the assignments, there's no need to go above and beyond, following the rubrics will easily get you an A.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it really helps you prepare your skills for the future such as cooperating with others, learning about body language and practicing your presenting skills.

    Course highlights:

    I gained communication skills like being open minded and respectful of others opinions. I've learned how to become a great presenter.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to learn all of the vocab words and do all the homework every day. If you can, do homework that's due in a couple of days just to be ahead. Go over the PowerPoint slides before class so you know what the topic is for that day and prepare some questions to ask.
