Minors to complement
your chosen major

Students majoring in the School of Communications are strongly encouraged, but not required, to pursue an academic minor or a double major in another discipline. Students add to their intellectual foundation and increase their career options when they have depth in another area - be it political science, history, art, business administration, international studies or a host of other possibilities at Elon.

In turn, the School of Communications offers two academic minors for students who choose to major in Business, Education or an Arts and Sciences discipline. About 60 Elon students are pursuing a minor either in Communications or Cinema.
