Video Editing Computers

Learning by doing is a major component of the digital media program at Dordt College. Students in the program are introduced to digital nonlinear editing technology in Introduction to Film and Video Production. Students begin shooting and editing after a few weeks of practice on the lab’s state-of-the-art cameras and computers. 

Students also work on semester projects in groups of two, with each person editing at his or her own work station. Each team gets hundreds of gigabytes of drive space for the creation of video projects.

For advanced students, Dordt’s production company, Prairie Grass Productions, brings in corporate and non-profit clients for hands-on experience in producing video according to customer specifications.

The program also offers exciting cross-disciplinary opportunities. Classes in the communication department are supplemented by courses like Acting for Film, Script Writing, and more.

Coupled with Dordt’s excellent Core Program, our graduates leave Dordt with marketable visual communication skills, a reel, and a Christian foundation that will offer a positive contribution and help them make a difference in the world of digital media.
