The MJC Forensics team (AKA Speech and Debate) is an award winning and nationally ranked program that travels and competes in local, statewide, and national tournaments. Students in our program compete in a variety of events ranging from platform speeches, oral interpretation, to debate. To learn more about the events we compete in check out the events section of this site for descriptions and examples of what some of our students have done.
There is NO audition process or tryouts. Anyone interested in joining the class is able to. During our twice a week class meetings and outside practices, you will gain the skills and experiences needed to excel as an orator. The speech and debate program at MJC provides a great chance to enhance your skills as an actor, debater, or public speaker. To join the team simply sign up for COMM 105 (Intercollegiate Forensics ) on PiratesNet. The class is worth 3 units and can be repeated up to 4 times.
