Interdisciplinary Communication

Program Overview

The Interdisciplinary Communication Major works across different areas of study to provide students a flexible expertise between different modes of communication. Students work with advisors in more than one field to tailor a course of study adapted to their particular goals and interests.

This major focuses on core areas of communication studies, while allowing you to select elective classes related to your unique passions.

Why Interdisciplinary Communication
at Judson?

Tailor-Made to you

This major is tailor-made to each student. The core courses focus on communication theory and practice, while the additional courses follow the interests of the individual students in tracks such as Business, Worship Arts, Literature, Digital Media, and Media Writing.

Internships and practicums then chosen for the curriculum are adapted from at least two programs of study to the specific goals the student wishes to achieve.

Outside opportunities

Scholarship prizes are awarded each semester to the top student presenters at the Judson Communication Arts Conference.

Post-Graduate Opportunities

The Judson University Graduate program offers a number of post-graduate degrees for those with an English undergraduate education including an M.Ed in Literacy.

Personal Attention

Our small class size enhances learning by providing a low student to professor ratio. Students have the opportunity to study amongst a staff that knows them personally and is invested in their educational and professional aspirations.

Find Success at Judson

The Interdisciplinary Communication program prepared me to be successful in finding employment, but more importantly, it taught me how to think. Teaching students to think critically, as well as to present those ideas through public speaking and written communication, is the real hallmark of the Interdisciplinary Communication program at Judson. I’m confident that my education prepared me not only for my first job out of college, but ultimately, for my last job and everything in between.”
