Speech and Debate Team (Forensics)

Speech and Debate Team (Forensics)

The CSU, Chico Speech and Debate team is an Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) funded program and a course offered through the Communications Studies Program (CMST 139A-C and CMST 339A-C). The team is a full-service intercollegiate forensics program. 

The term “full-service” designation means that we have competitors in both policy debate and individual event competitions. The term “intercollegiate” means we compete in tournament settings against other two- and four-year institutions of higher education.

The team offers competition in cross-examination, team policy debate, and individual events.
