The Inquisitive Student Mind

Give students a research opportunity, and their breadth of ideas will be amazing.

The capstone course in Elon’s School of Communications requires a significant research paper. Each semester, our faculty winnow the 100+ papers to a few selected for publication in the Elon Journal of Undergraduate Research in Communications.

We publish the nation’s only student research journal in the discipline, according to the Council on Undergraduate Research.

The Fall 2010 issue contains 10 papers, leading with “The Daily Show and Meta-Coverage: How Mock News Covers the Political Communications System.” Other articles focus on social media use, health communication strategies, public relations framing of a merger, podcast advertising, digital music, legality of live blogging from sports events, and media framing of female presidential candidates.

This journal reflects what we enjoy seeing in our students – intellectual maturing and a curiosity about our media world.
