Forensics Team Continues Reputation for National Excellence

The Falcon Forensics, Speech & Debate Team is BGSU’s first competitive forensics team to be recognized nationally and this dedication to excellence continues today as team members celebrate their 70th national team championship!  With travel from Missouri to Florida to New York, our team members continue to demonstrate excellence and bring home top honors at tournaments throughout the season. More importantly, forensics offers a process for the development of critical skills that last a lifetime.

The Falcon Forensics Speech & Debate Program is a co-curricular, competitive team offered through the School of Media & Communication and Department of Communication to any BGSU undergraduate student in good academic standing. Students, with the help of an experienced coaching staff, prepare speeches, debates and interpretive performances, competing with similar students from other academic institutions. The activity is the collegiate level of speech contests and forensics teams offered in many high schools.

The BGSU Forensics, Speech & Debate Program is committed to promoting communicative, creative, performance and critical excellence through undergraduate intercollegiate forensics and debate activities within a supportive learning environment. Participants enroll in COMM1990 (or) COMM3990 “Forensics Activities” for academic credit and are eligible for Forensics & Debate Talent “Grant-in-Aid” Scholarships.
