    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn how to master speaking in public, and gain the proper skills to effectively get a message across to an audience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were having the freedom to pick speech topics. I learned that the type of speech plays a large role in how to prepare for and deliver it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course, I would advise that you do not purchase this textbook because it is on reserve at the campus library. Also, I would say to have fun in this class!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Public speaking is a required course for graduation for UPG, so inevitably you will find yourself in this class before your final semester. The best thing I can advise anyone about to take this course to do is to pick topics that you have a passion for. Speak on a subject that means something to you, be it a hobby or skill you've spent your life perfecting, your intended career and what drives you to enter that field, or a social topic that is important to you. When you genuinely care about your topic, you prepare a better speech, you deliver it more effectively and with more emotion, and i guarantee it will be better received by your audience. If you have an interest in your topic, it makes this class that much easier.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I have the capacity for effective public communication. I had a great deal of anxiety leading into this class, but over time and with practice I learned skills to be able to give a speech with confidence.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Again, I can't stress enough to pick topics that mean something to you. My class gave three speeches, all with different styles and goals. I chose to give three different speeches that fit the requirements, but I did them all on the same topic (Sudden Cardiac Arrest and public CPR/AED education). This allowed me to build upon information I had previously delivered to my audience as well as explore new areas of the topic with them, each time with a different strategy. In the end, I was able to elaborate and deliver a broad range of information on a topic without having to redefine the entire topic with every new speech.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public speaking is useful in everyday situations. This class uses active learning to get students to feel more comfortable in speaking environments. It is an excellent way to improve speaking skills.

    Course highlights:

    I would recommend this class because no matter what job or career you have or will pursue, speaking publically will be mandatory. This class helps prepare students for their futures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Everyone has anxiety and fear at first when trying to speak publically, but practicing will make you speech more fluently and confidently.
