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.

Three Year Plan

You can complete your required course work in an accelerated three-year plan, a sample of which is shown here.

Four Year Plan

Sample four year graduation plan. Students who receive credit for courses taken prior to matriculation may be able to reduce their course load or avoid taking summer classes if they have enough elective units to graduate. Students may choose to complete a GE cluster to satisfy five requirements (4 GEs and Writing II) with three classes. GE clusters also carry honors credit.
