The Carnegie Mellon Forensics Speech and Debate Team consists of two competitive teams that compete in Individual Events (Speech) and Parliamentary Debate. In addition, we hold open workshops for all members of the campus to improve public speaking skills.

Speak, Perform, Debate

Learn to be comfortable and confident with your body language and your voice, while doing something you enjoy. Our practices focus on not only on perfecting your selected event, but also a breadth of speech-related skills.

Compete in tournaments

Speech and Debate competitions are intense and fun. Through one-on-one coaching and weekly practices, we help you become a winning competitor who can act and speak with eloquence and confidence.

Learn from workshops

Our hands-on workshops are both fun and valuable learning experiences. They provide you with a way to improve your public speaking skills without committing to weekly practices and meetings.
