Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Communication website! We hope that you find this to be a useful resource for learning about our department, including current events, news coverage about our faculty’s innovation and discoveries, and opportunities for you to be involved with our program. This is an exciting time in our department. The early years of our program were characterized by growth, development, and an enduring commitment to help our students achieve their goals. These goals persist today, and as a result, we have much to celebrate!

Our faculty members are exceptional! They are consistently recognized as leaders in their research areas. Their scientific discoveries and theoretical insights have impressive impacts—appearing in top academic journals, securing millions of dollars in federal and private research grants, informing the general public, and influencing social policy initiatives.

Our students are extraordinary! The Communication major remains one of the most sought-after in all of UCLA, and we owe that to our students.
