Programs and Selected Career Training

Judson confers the bachelor of arts degree and the master of Architecture, Education, Education in Literacy and Organizational Leadership degrees.

Programs in Selected Career Training

An increasing number of students are seeking specific preparation for a post-university career. The Judson faculty seeks to meet that need within the flexibility of an accredited liberal arts education. See coordinators in selected career training programs for each division.


Judson courses fulfill all requirements for pre-medicine study, and graduates may immediately enter medical or dental schools. Faculty members in the Science-Mathematics Division serve as a committee to advise on pre-med courses. Students interested in the medical profession should contact these faculty members as early as possible.


The Pre-Law program at Judson helps students develop the skills necessary for successful performance in law school and legal practice. The course offerings are designed in accordance with the preferences of law schools for undergraduate study. Additional resources and guidance are available, including LSAT preparation, internship opportunities, and off-campus study programs to enhance preparation for law school and vocation. Students interested in the pre-law opportunities at Judson should contact the pre-law advisor, Dr. Craig Kaplowitz at ckaplowitz@judsonu.edu.

Teacher Certification: "Certificate Only" Program

Consistent with the Teacher Education Division's conceptual framework of Partners Pathfinding or Professional Excellence, a new "path" has been created for those who already have at least a bachelor's degree to pursue coursework leading to teacher certification in as few as 20 months (including student teaching) with course sequences beginning each May. This part-time program with classes offered twice per week during the late afternoon and evening hours (with the exception of clinical experiences which, by nature, must be completed during school hours) enables qualified candidates to work toward certification while maintaining their full-time employment. State-approved programs are available for Elementary Education, Secondary Education* (Business, Marketing and Computer Education; Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Social Science/History), and K-12 Visual Art. (Daytime programs in other programs are also available.)

For more information, contact Dr. Keith Drew, Director of Secondary Education and Certification Only Programs: (847) 628-1082 or kdrew@judsonu.edu

*These programs assume interested candidates have already earned a degree in one of these programs.
