The Media Writing Major prepares you for work in business, news, entertainment, non-profit, and ministry-related fields, using both traditional and new media. We offer three tracks for specialization within the program: Business, Design, and Literature.
We provide a well-rounded exploration of areas related to media writing: history, theory, and internship. Sample courses include “Media Writing,” “Screenwriting,” and “Public Relations.” Students will experiment with different media, such as video and photography, web design, literature, and speech.
Why Media Writing at Judson?
Our partnership with the LA Film Studies Center allows students to take on coursework and internships through a semester-long study in Hollywood with media professionals.
Our small class sizes enhance 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.
Scholarship prizes are awarded each semester for best student presentations at the Judson Communication Arts Conference.
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.
