Pasadena City College, Home of the PCC Lancers

Speech and Debate Team

Our department houses a nationally ranked speech and forensic team and is open to everyone to participate.

Whether you are an experienced competitor or would like to apply what you've learned in your public speaking course, our team is there for you.

Students may compete in individual or group events including: debate, informative and persuasive speaking, reader's theater, or oral interpretation.

Our squad travels to competitions at the local, state, and national level. We host our own tournament, The Watson-Lancer, at the end of every October.

During the 2009-2010 season, the PCC Speech and Debate team placed 4th in the state at the CCCFA State Championship tournament. They went on to take gold in the mid-school division and the 7th overall at the Phi Rho Pi Community College national tournament.
