Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

Join the Debate Team

The University of Texas at Dallas Debate Team offers opportunities in two-person college policy debate. While most of our teams compete nationally, the UT Dallas Debate Team is open to any undergraduate student at UT Dallas who is officially enrolled and in good academic standing.

Allocation of travel opportunities is based on demonstrated effort and commitment, prior debate experience, academic standing as well as service to the team. The bulk of the travel opportunities go to those competing on the national circuit at the varsity level and those varsity debaters who will soon move from the regional circuit to the national circuit.

The University of Texas at Dallas Debate Team offers scholarships to debaters committed to academic and competitive excellence. To learn more about scholarship opportunities, the university, and the debate program, review the information available on this website, then complete the Join the Team online form to be contacted by a member of the coaching staff.
