Programs and Selected Career Training

Some departments have programs in selected career training. These optional programs are neither majors nor areas of concentration.

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.

The programs in selected career training are:



Judson courses fulfill all requirements for pre-medicine study, and graduates may immediately enter medical or dental schools. Faculty members in the Science-Mathematics Department 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.



For those who already have at least a bachelor's degree, the Teacher Education Division offers coursework leading to teacher certification (including student teaching). State-approved programs are available for Elementary Education; Early Childhood Education; Secondary Education (English; Mathematics

Science/Biology; Science/Chemistry; Social Science/History); Special Education (Early Childhood or Learning Behavior Specialist I); and Physical Education (K-12) as well as Bilingual and ESL endorsements. Completion of licensure requirements typically takes five semesters – two of “foundations,” two of “methods,” and one of student teaching – and the ability to take a combination of daytime and evening courses is required. For more information, contact Dr. Keith Drew, Director of Secondary Education and Certification Only Programs: 847-628-1082 or kdrew@judsonu.edu.
