hey guys,

Which UC other than Berkeley and LA is the best for a communication major? I did my own research and landed on SD and Davis but I can only choose one :/ (have I missed a UC that's worth looking at?) which one would you guys choose and why? Also, I'm considering a school that focuses on practical work (not too much of research) and internship opportunities.
If this helps, I'm looking into advertising and marketing...

So yeah, back to the first question..which school is better for an comm major? SD or Davis?
I've heard that SD has a strong bio program but it is as strong for comm too? What about Davis and what are it's strengths?

Thank you!

    The communications program at UCSD is not one focused on advertising, public relations, journalism, etc.UCSD is a research school, most of its majors are in the field of math and sciences.

    Read more about it here, it tells you exactly what the program is. I'm not sure that's what you want.

    I also wanted to tell you more about advertising and marketing within the UC's. I am also interested in advertising and marketing and have realized that basically none of the UC's offer marketing, except for UC Irvine. I'm pretty sure they have a communications field as well. You can look it up though. Other that UCI and maybe like two others, none of the UC's have marketing or even business administration with a marketing track. I've spent plenty of time looking this up.
