CST 100 DE - Public Speaking Course Information

CST 100 - Public Speaking provides students with an understanding of the process of human communication in public situations through the application of theory and principles of public address. Students will gain an overview of the process of public speaking, then learn the basic principles of speech preparation, and finally apply and adapt those
principles when delivering various types of speeches.

CST 100-37

CST 100-37  is an online course with no required on campus meetings. In order to satisfy the course requirements and objectives each student must comply with the following technical requirements:

Each student MUST deliver her or his speech in front of an audience of at least ten to fifteen adults.  Failure to adhere to this requirement will result in a grade of "0" for the speech.  Accepted settings for speech delivery are academic settings, professional/corporate organizations, civic organizations, clubs, councils and religious organizations. Speeches may not be delivered in domestic settings (i.e. in the family home, family reunions, etc.) Failure to comply with the required setting will result in a grade of zero for the speech.

Each student is responsible for the necessary equipment to record presentations.  New River Community College and the office of Distance Education will not be considered as responsible for providing equipment or services. Students who cannot provide the required audience, setting and/or equipment are directed to drop this course and add another section of CST 100 Public Speaking. NRCC offers CST 100 as a traditional lecture course, as a print based Distance Education course and as a hybrid online course.
