Dr. Akbar Javidi


I hold a bachelor’s degree in English from the College of Translation in Tehran in 1976, a master’s degree in education from Oklahoma City University in Oklahoma City in 1979, and a Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Oklahoma in Norman in 1986.

What do you do at UNK?

I am an Associate Professor of Communication and teach Cross-Cultural Communication, Intercultural Communication, Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Interpersonal and Relational Communication, Organizational Communication and Communication Theory.

Why choose the Communication Department at UNK?

Small classes at UNK allow me to interact on a one-on-one basis with my students and learn from them the same way that they learn from me. The emphasis of UNK is on teaching, learning, and developing skills that will make our students' successes in their future careers and lives. Kearney is a caring, safe, friendly and family oriented community, which carries over into the life and work at UNK. It is a community of friendship and learning.
