Special Notice: In light of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant, UCLA is making changes to the start of winter quarter to reduce the risk of a rise in new COVID-19 cases:  Classes will begin on Jan. 3 as scheduled. Classes will be held remotely for the first two weeks of the winter quarter (department staff will also follow these guidelines with the Comm main office remaining closed with staff working remotely during this time). We intend to return to in-person instruction and main office staffing on Jan. 31.
