Communication is the thread that holds the social quilt together, and that interconnects individuals with society as a whole. Scholars and students in the UC Davis Department of Communication analyze the production, distribution, processing and impact of messages as a means of understanding and improving interactions among individuals, technologies, organizations and societies.
