Department of Communications


Welcome to the Department of Communications at the University of North Alabama.

Communication is a powerful process that influences us professionally and personally. Those who study and understand it are prepared for a lifetime of opportunities.

We value experiential learning and teach students how to produce mass media content, communicate in professional environments, and conduct academic research. We also know that a democratic society depends upon an informed citizenry who can critique media practices, analyze media messages, and effectively communicate ideas in an ever-changing media landscape.

Courses in Public Relations and Journalism & Digital Media Production lead to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication. Courses in Communication Studies lead to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts. The B.S. and B.A. degrees in Mass Communication are accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC).

Communication is a dynamic, challenging, diverse, and rewarding field. We invite you to join us.
