CA schools for journalism/communications/marketing

<p>Was wondering what are some good colleges for journalism or marketing. especially colleges that are in southern california. you know, somewhere warm and close to the beach but still reachable by someone with poor poor grades such as myself. </p>


<p>USC and UCLA are probably tops for communications in California. But, since you mentioned your grades might not be up to snuff for them some other VERY good choices to consider are: Loyola Marymount, Santa Clara U, Chapman, University of Redlands, San Diego State, University of San Diego, Pepperdine, University of the Pacific, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Northridge. </p>

<p>Of the above, I think Santa Clara and Pepperdine probably have the best programs after USC/UCLA, but the others are decent enough.</p>
