The School of Communications is a place of engaged learning for 1,200 students majoring in Journalism, Strategic Communications, Cinema & Television Arts, Communication Design, Media Analytics, and Sport & Event Management.
The School of Communications is nationally accredited, along with only 17 other communications programs at private universities across the United States. ACEJMC accreditation is the highest benchmark of program quality in journalism and communications.
Our 60 faculty members have vast professional experience, including a Pulitzer Prize recipient. Class sizes are kept small so that students and teachers get to know each other quickly and work together closely.
Elon students produce outstanding work—winner of the collegiate Emmy for best student television newscast, national winner for best multimedia news, first place in national film competitions, national public relations case study champion.
Our students analyze the important roles of media and communications in society. We publish the nation’s only undergraduate journal in the discipline – the Elon Journal of Undergraduate Research in Communications.
Brian Williams of MSNBC serves on our National Advisory Board, which provides professional expertise to the faculty, internship and career networking to students, and program support to the school.
All students complete a professional internship before graduation. Our internship director guides Communications students into the workplace, and the school has a career services professional to help students in their transition to life after Elon.
Students spend a lot of time in the communications school, and they appreciate our excellent facilities and technology. Take a video tour here, and we hope to see you on campus for a personal tour.
