In our MA/PhD program, you will find the most distinguished faculty in the field working closely with the best and brightest graduate students. We provide research, teaching, and service in communication science that is socially relevant, theoretically motivated, and methodologically rigorous and eclectic. We highly value our prospective graduate students, current graduate students, and alumni. In the Department of Communication at UC Santa Barbara, we do the best we can to help our graduate students achieve their goals, while they are pursuing PhDs and even after they have graduated from our program.
If you have questions, we encourage you to read the facts page and the Graduate Handbook. You may also contact Tricia Taylor, the Graduate Program Advisor, or Dr. Karen Myers, the faculty Graduate Program Director.
