Interested in joining UGA debate in the capacity of assistant coach? We're always looking for those with time, energy, and a desire to help coach our like-minded undergraduates. For those interested in continuing their formal education, pursuing studies in speech communication, or in just continuing to be involved in the debate community, the University of Georgia has a tremendous amount to offer. With a proven track record of success in intercollegiate debate, Georgia couples a competitive debate program with one of the top speech communication programs in the country. While academic performance is stressed at UGA (as it should be in any graduate program), the Debate Union is able to provide a number of assistantship supports each year, allowing debate to substitute for the standard teaching load. Assistantships are available to both Masters and Doctoral students. The links below provide additional details and information about the department and the admissions process in general.
