Dynamic teachers
and scholars

The heart of a university is its faculty.

At Elon, the School of Communications faculty has a love of teaching, strong professional experience, the best academic training and a desire to help students succeed. Combined with our small classes and experiential learning style, it's no wonder our professors and students have such respect for one another.

The School of Communications has more than 30 faculty and staff members. We're a young, diverse faculty rich with experience at newspapers and broadcast stations and in academic and corporate settings. Our professors are wonderful teachers, and we keep attracting the best. Before coming to Elon in 2001, our A.J. Fletcher Professor had been selected as Virginia Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Another professor won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary and regularly serves on Pulitzer juries.

The great majority of our faculty members have a Ph.D., law degree or the highest degree in their discipline. A growing number are building national reputations as scholars in such fields as cable television policy, the colonial American press, Internet-use patterns and the theory of media agenda-setting. They are authors of texts and have been recognized nationally and internationally for their research.

Internationally, many Communications professors have worked internationally as professionals before coming to Elon and a number of faculty members have taught Study Abroad courses in Europe and Australia; four have taught in China as part of Elon's summer exchange program.
