Example of Public Speaking College Course Syllabus

Note for Teachers: This is an example of a college-level syllabus for a public speaking course taught at UC Berkeley. While the particulars of this class may not necessarily fit your situation, it is intended to spark potential ideas for what the flow of a formal public speaking class in school might look like. This syllabus was designed with 6 hours of instruction time per week and 35 students in the class, where none of the students had any experience with public speaking and took the class to gain confidence.
