Speaking in public and being an active listener are indispensable skills. They are important in both an individual’s personal and professional life. Paradoxically, as critical as both skills are to success in life, they are equally hard to master — speaking in public because of the apprehension it generates and being an active listener because of how hard it is to learn to do.

This course provides the student with the necessary background knowledge and practice in both public speaking and active listening. Additionally, it provides detail about the different types of speeches as well as the different media students have at their disposal when constructing speeches for different audiences.

Students will complete a variety of speech projects and discussion boards throughout the course, as well.
