Forensics, Public Performance and Intercollegiate Speech and Debate

WHAT IS FORENSICS?

Forensics offers students the opportunity to develop, refine and master communication skills. We mentor new speakers and guide seasoned competitors. In fact, SRJC has a 100-year history of developing first-time speakers and encouraging them to join the team.  Students on the team travel to intercollegiate tournaments locally and across the state.

As a team or as individuals you can participate in many forms of forensics competitions.
