Important Information

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.

This sample program plan presents an overview of courses that students majoring in communication must complete to obtain an undergraduate degree within three years. Your program plan will differ, depending on previous credit received, your course schedule, and available course offerings.

We strongly encourage students to develop a personal program plan in consultation with an academic adviser.
