Public Speaking

Confidence to Speak Up

Sign up for the best elective :)

Public Speaking is a helpful class because of the attributes it gives you, including:

  • developing critical thinking skills,
  • fine-tuning verbal and nonverbal skills,
  • overcoming fear of public speaking.

Every day for one trimester, you get the experience of speaking in front of a class.

Some benefits of public speaking are:

  • influencing the world around you,
  • developing leadership skills,
  • becoming a thought leader.

These skills are helpful in many jobs and careers, so it might help you with your future. For instance, in teaching you will have to be able to talk in front of a whole class and describing what you need the students to do.
