Department of Communications


UNA Communications Alumni and Graduating Seniors,

The University of North Alabama Department of Communications recognizes this is an exceptionally difficult time for many of you. Some of you may find yourselves suddenly unemployed. Members of the Class of 2020 are entering one of the most uncertain job markets in modern history. The Department wants to help in whatever ways it can, and we have started by creating a showcase platform for our Communications seniors and Communications alumni who are seeking temporary or permanent employment in their fields of expertise.

UNA Communications seniors and alumni, please submit your information and resume HERE

The Department is asking UNA Communications alumni and friends who have the budget and ability to hire remote workers to reach out to UNA Communications students and graduates regarding any opportunities you may have. We’ll begin posting information about job candidates soon and will update the list regularly. Please check back as often as you are able.

The UNA Department of Communications is proud of the outstanding contributions our graduates and current students have made to our communities, and we are committed to help you during these difficult times.

 Thank you,

Dr. Butler Cain

Chair, 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.

Dr. Butler Cain, Chair
