    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a very good class to take if you want to improve your speech giving skills. It is a good class if you are trying to become a business person, politician, sales person, or simply want to improve your public speaking.

    Course highlights:

    In COM 100, I learned that giving speeches is not as easy as one thinks. I use to think that giving a speech was all about memorizing it word for word but it is actually very different from that thought. I learned about how to create a speech outline and properly present a speech by only using that outline. I also learned that there is criteria that needs to be followed in order to give a successful speech.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice for students who are considering this course would be to go for it! This is a great class that will help you improve your public speaking skills. I advise you to do all the readings, take the quizzes on time, make your speech outlines early and go to office hours with the professor and have them go over it with you. The professor will give you tips on how to improve your outline & speech. Also, pick speech topics that are genuinely interesting to you and that you wanna inform the class about. Lastly, participate in class!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Course highlights:

    Not only do You feel a interpersonal connection with your classmates, you also learn different techniques when speaking that will be helpful to you for the rest of your life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are sort of an introvert like myself expect to be pushed out of that comfort zone. My advice would be to embrace it, embrace the people you are around take note that you are in a safe environment and that no one is out to harm you. The sooner you are able to do that the more comfortable you will be with this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a great course because the professor took it seriously. Even though it was only a 100 level course, there was a higher level of commitment expected. In order to succeed, one had to actually push themselves to do their best and give each speech their all which, in my opinion, translates to better speech giving outside of the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that a lot goes into planning a speech and that everyone has a lot of improving that they can do, even after years of experience. Speeches are always changing and free-flowing and that is a major key in a successful presentation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn a lot in a short amount of time and even if something seems like common sense, don't take it for granted.
