Welcome to Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences

Approximately two-thirds of university students have a major or minor in Elon College, the College of Arts & Sciences. We hope that you will join them in pursuing studies in the arts and sciences. Our students pursue Elon’s many opportunities to deepen, apply and integrate knowledge in undergraduate research, study abroad, internships, service learning and leadership. We are at the forefront of the university’s efforts to enhance diversity and create an inclusive community.

Employers consistently support the value of an arts and sciences education in today’s changing workplace. There is great demand for people who have strong critical thinking and communication skills, and the ability to solve complex problems. In addition, employers stress the need for those with intercultural skills, ethical reasoning and a desire and ability to pursue lifelong learning. This is what our students gain as a result of studying in Elon College and the results are borne out in the success of our alumni.
