The Debate and Forensics Speech Club


Welcome to the The Debate and Forensics Speech Club website

The Debate and Forensics Speech Club is open for all cal state students to join. You must enroll in call numbers and be ready to participate in events

The Cal State LA Forensics Squad has been active since the campus’ doors were opened in 1947. In the past 15 years, the Squad has won 5 national championships and finished in the top ten twice. Undergraduate students, working with coaches, compete at tournaments hosted by colleges and universities across the country, in individual and group performance of literature, presentation of prepared and extemporaneous speeches, as well as participation in intercollegiate debates. When you join our team, you learn lifelong skills such as self-confidence, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking. We compete year round with other universities on our way to the National Championships. Along the way, you will form relationships with people from around the country. You also earn elective units during the class while participating in valuable community service projects both on and off-campus. The Speech and Debate Team is great for people who are: competitive, opinionated, wanting to become better speakers, interested in networking with other students & potential employers, looking for an activity on campus or are simply interested in priority registration. To get more information stop by the squad room in King Hall C3102A on Monday or Wednesday between 1-4pm or email, gbrodak@calstatela.edu.
