Since creating our Division of Professional Studies in 1994, Judson has found innovative ways to provide career-specific education and a high level of personal support to adult students, including those learning online.

As an evangelical Christian university, we believe education has the power to transform your mind, soul, and skills through courses that are values-based and career-forward.

  • Online


    Take classes from the comfort and safety of your own home.
