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 prepares you for work in business, news, entertainment, non-profit, and ministry-related fields, using both traditional and new media. Interdisciplinary options let you tailor a program to your needs, like adding courses in business, visual arts, or worship arts.
