When the Debate Team functions as a class, it has used the following.
COM ST 22: Introduction to Competitive Speech and Debate
This is the class for students who want to learn about a competitive speech and debate team, or who want to be on the SMC competitive speech and debate team. No previous experience is necessary, but students with high school or other competitive speech or debate experience are highly encouraged to join. Some of the work is arranged hours, which means students work on their own, attend tournaments and train with the team.
