The Centre was founded in 1995, as an academic response to the establishment of democracy in South Africa, and in the wake of a large international conference on "Persuasion and Power" held in July 1994. The Centre is unique on the Continent and concerns itself with multi-disciplinary research in public rhetoric, deliberative democracy and argumentative culture. In 2004 the Centre underwent a formal Review which recommended its continuation. Since 2007 the Centre is affiliated to the Centre for Film and Media Studies.

The Centre for Rhetoric Studies is home to the Association for Rhetoric and Communication in Southern Africa founded in 1994 (ARCSA). The Centre, with and apart from ARCSA, has sustainable relations with the American National Communication Association, the Rhetoric Society of America the International Rhetoric Culture Project based in Mainz, Germany and EURICOM, in Slovenia, as well as the newly-established African Association for Rhetoric.

The Centre is also a participant in international projects mainly with European Union counterparts (currently: BI School of Management, Oslo, Norway; Institute for Multi-disciplinary Studies, U. of Warsaw, Poland; Department of Philosophy, U.of Cluj-Napoca, Romania).

The Centre offers a MPhil in Rhetoric Studies made up of graduate courses in rhetoric administered from the Centre for Film and Media Studies, a MPhil in Rhetoric Studies by dissertation alone and the degree of PhD.
