Media Writing

Student studying on computer

Program Overview

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.

Find Success at Judson

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.”
