Whether you want to be a writer, teacher, lawyer, or social media guru, the Judson English department can give you the wide-ranging skills you need to thrive. The Literature Major runs the gamut from Homer’s Odyssey to Batman—with Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, and J.R.R. Tolkien in between—emphasizing the art of in-depth reading. The Writing Major concentrates on creative fiction and non-fiction, while the Media Writing Major covers web, entertainment, news, and popular print media. Interdisciplinary options let you tailor a program to your unique needs, like adding courses in business, visual arts, or worship arts.

Taking English as a minor was one of the best choices I could have made on both a personal and professional level. From reading “The Screwtape Letters” to creative writing classes, my understanding of literature and the craft of writing grew. The greatest contribution of all was the encouragement and amazing support of professors who believed in and wanted me to succeed. They helped me pursue my passion for writing and it’s through them that I’ve reached my dream of becoming a published author.
