SPE 112 - Fundamentals of Debate

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.

The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the unique genre of human communication known as argumentation or debate. Students in the course will be provided with training which will allow them to think quickly as well as critically, organize and integrate many arguments into a coherent whole, and investigate ideas which, when played out on the battlefield of the spoken word, can be effective instruments of persuasion. It is hoped that the competitive nature of debate will be used to stimulate and motivate members of the class and create an electric atmosphere which will enhance learning.
Usually offered Spring semester in alternate years
General Education: Meets SUNY requirement for Basic Communication (BC)
