        On May 28, Chancellor Gary S. May wrote:

        “The events of this week also cause me to believe even more strongly, if that’s possible, in building an inclusive environment that recognizes and respects people of all backgrounds and experiences. I remain committed to that and hope you will do what you can to eliminate racism, sexism, and other negative influences on our progression as a nation.”

        We join Chancellor May in these efforts toward building diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment in the Department of Communication and at the University of California Davis.

        Each student, in consultation with his or her major professor and the M.A. committee, chooses either the thesis or non-thesis plan. Both plans require two years of study.

        Thesis Option (Plan 1)

        Because most of our master's students obtain the M.A. on their way to earning a Ph.D. degree, they are expected to opt for the thesis option to obtain valuable research experience.

        Non-thesis Option (Plan 2)

        The non-thesis option is often – although certainly not always – preferred for students who have a change of heart about doctoral studies.

        Other Requirements

        In addition to the requirements for Plan 1 and Plan 2, students may be subject to other requirements and expectations, as described here.

        Sample Plans of Study

        Every student will devise a plan of study in consultation the master's degree adviser.
