COMM 2002E - Fundamentals of Public Speaking♦


(5 cr.) Whether you participate in training, a business meeting, or community event, being a skilled public speaker differentiates an uninteresting experience from an engaging one. Students in this course work to develop and enhance their ability and confidence in presentation skills, empathic listening, and critical thinking. Topics include developing content and organizing ideas using proven techniques for the oral delivery of informative and persuasive speeches. Additional topics include audience analysis, critical listening and thinking, and the use of technology in presentations. This course gives students an opportunity to improve their public communication skills, as well as plan, create, and deliver presentations. Note: This course is delivered over a 12-week term, but is equated to COMM 2002, which is delivered in a 6-week term.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.); 1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
