The Wayne State University forensics team provides an exciting way to make friends and tour the country (and learn about communication). WSU's forensics program has established a long tradition of competition in both debate andindividual events.

Since the program began in 1918, Wayne State has produced hundreds of team and individual speaking champions. Our students have won the National Delta Sigma Rho-Tau Kappa Alpha Championship eight times, have placed second in the National Debate Tournament twice, placed among the top 10 at the National Individual Events Tournament and have won virtually every major national debate tournament at least once. Debate and speech team activities provide students with rigorous training and opportunities to sharpen speaking and critical thinking skills.
