Message from the President


Elon University’s graduate programs combine the best of the liberal arts and sciences with nationally recognized engaged learning opportunities that enable students to acquire the skills needed to reach professional goals. Elon is one of only seven private universities in the nation with accredited schools of law, business, communications, health sciences, and education, along with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious academic honor society.

Each of our academically rigorous programs is stamped with Elon’s distinctive approach to learning that includes small classes, dedicated faculty scholars, and opportunities to gain practical experience in a university environment fully committed to inquiry and research.


• Elon has been ranked among the top-20 part-time MBA programs in the nation since Bloomberg Businessweek debuted its rankings in 2007. This year, the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business, which offers the Master of Business Administration, will enroll its second class of Master of Science in Management students. The program combines graduate business courses with concentrations in organizational analytics and corporate communications.

•  Elon’s newest school is the School of Health Sciences, which offers the Doctor of Physical Therapy program and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. These programs immerse students in rigorous science and research experiences and feature exceptional clinical experiences to reinforce classroom learning.

•  In June 2017, the School of Education will enroll its first class of Master of Arts in Teaching students. In response to North Carolina’s increasing need for educators in various fields, the program will lead to North Carolina teacher licensure in secondary, middle grades, and K-12 subjects. Elon’s Master of Education program is structured to fit a teacher’s busy schedule with classes on campus in the summer and online classes in the fall and spring. The program culminates with a study abroad to trip to Costa Rica where M.Ed. candidates are immersed in learning about the culture and educational advancement.

•  The Master of Arts in Interactive Media in the School of Communications provides students with the opportunity to complete individual capstone projects as a culminating experience. Students put their planning and research into action with an emphasis on strategic issues or advanced skills development.

•  Elon’s School of Law offers a groundbreaking curriculum that is highly experiential and positions students to excel in the rapidly evolving legal profession. Students gain foundational legal skills, work directly with clients, and are mentored by experienced lawyers in a nationally recognized preceptor program.

I welcome your interest in graduate education at Elon and hope you will give serious consideration to joining our community of scholars.


Leo M. Lambert

President, Elon University
