Undergraduate Majors and Minors

Cracking open a textbook is just the beginning. Sure, you’ll learn about reading, writing and arithmetic. But you’ll also learn about life and how to be successful at it.

Learning at Judson goes beyond the four walls of the classroom. Architecture majors study skyscrapers in Chicago. Education majors gain experience in at-risk classrooms. Science majors conduct experiments to aid in world hunger research.

Still undecided? You’ll have a world of possibilities to try out before you make the right decision.
