What we believe in

Our communities need people who can accurately and compellingly tell us about the world we live in. Amid great technological change, Elon's School of Communications prepares students to serve the public good through both traditional and new media.

We seek to create an experiential learning environment so that students become lifelong learners committed to excellence. It is our intent, then, for students to:

  • Understand and appreciate both the theoretical and practical orientation of their discipline.

  • Develop expertise in one of the emphases within the School: journalism, broadcast and new media, corporate communications or cinema.

  • Become proficient in the basic communication skills of effective writing and speaking.

  • Gain a foundation in substantive areas of communications study such as media law, ethics, history, technology and social impact.

  • Establish a broad intellectual grounding in the liberal arts and sciences through General Studies and, where appropriate, minors in departments outside of communications.

  • Be dedicated to truth and integrity, and respect deadlines, accuracy and professional standards.
