This one-credit course is designed to prepare students with high communication apprehension (CA) for speaking-intensive classes. It provides an overview of what CA is, and the contexts in which it occurs, and the short- and long-term effects it can have on speakers. Students will identify dimensions that trigger their own CA, and learn techniques to reduce anxiety about public speaking situations. Corequisite: concurrent enrollment in CMST 191 - Introduction to Public Speaking or CMST 192 - Introduction to Speech Communication with no previous enrollment or have instructor permission. P/NC only. Offered when demand warrants.
