English | Judson University Christian College


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.

"Judson’s English department helped me discover my love for journalism and nonfiction writing, and then gave me opportunities to develop and sharpen my craft. I can draw a direct line from the training I received at Judson to the career I have today. I’m forever grateful for this school, and especially for the faculty and staff who guided me toward my future."
