    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a must need for any career choice. It helps the fear of speaking publicly and helps your vocal structure in the work place. For example, when you first begin the class you have to present a speech about 3 minutes long talking about yourself then the topics become more difficult as you go on along with the time you have to present. The last assignment is a 15 minute speech on what ever topic you prefer. I promise you by the end you will have the confidence to present to the world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were building your confidence of speaking. It's scary in the beginning but then by the end of the semester you're a pro. Taking this course sounds difficult but it all pays off in the end.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although the topic of speaking to a class seems scary, I promise you it's worth it. You'll need it in an future career you choose. Don't just be the guy who's afraid to speak becuase he thinks it's not enough.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I was terrified of taking speech! I'm so competitive that I can't stand to let something beat me, so I took the class anyways. It was required and there was no way around it. The best advice I was given that I will pass down to you is don't be afraid, be nervous but not afraid. Even the most confident public speakers become nervous. In a class environment, everyone is terrified before going up in front of everybody. My advice, volunteer to go first and stop being, well, so afraid. Pretend you're a teacher and you know everything about your topic. Have fun with it!

    Course highlights:

    Other than my professor being great, this class further proved that nothing is impossible. We place our own barriers sometimes. Our own fears stop us from moving forward. I learned that if I don't try at least, I'll always lose, but if I try at least try a little bit, I'll get further than I would have if I had not at least tried.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! It doesn't have to be your career goal but you'd be surprised how good you can be at it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this class. If you have a fear of public speaking like I do, don't be anxious. This class takes that into perspective and actually teaches you ways to deal with it. There are four speeches and two exams.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write an outline for a speech, how to prepare a presentation, and some techniques for holding n audiences attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to write your speech at least a few days before your presentation date so you have enough time to practice it.
