Course: Speech and Debate

HC 399H

Professor: Trond Jacobsen

The Clark Honors College hosts the nationally-ranked University of Oregon Forensics Program. The program is designed to teach rhetorical habits of mind and speech through intercollegiate debate and individual events. The program travels to about thirteen tournaments, hosts two on-campus tournaments, and engages in on-campus speaking activities. Two graduate teaching fellows are assigned to the program. Debate students are paired with partners and are expected to conduct extensive research on the debate topics selected by the Cross Examination Debate Association (CEDA) and the Parliamentary Debate Association. Novice and experienced student debaters are welcome.

This course is open to all UO students (not only Clark Honors College students).
