wikipedia is good. Search wikipedia. Or google.
In classical electrodynamics, Maxwell's equations in free space give an electrodynamic wave which travels at c. This is the classical picture.
In quantum mechanics, light is made up of particles called photons which have zero rest mass and must therefore travel at c. These photons show both wave-like and particle-like properties (as with all quantum objects). In quantum mechanics, its not really correct to say something is a wave or is a particle.
