Journalism

Do you love the art of storytelling? Do you like to keep others up-to-date on the latest information and news?

If you major in journalism at Dordt, you’ll learn to give a voice to the voiceless and hold the powerful accountable. You’ll be prepared to enter a world that instantly and constantly publishes information, ensuring that the truth is told.

Learn to report from a Christian perspective—calling for justice and telling the stories of those in need.

 

Journalism at Dordt

Be challenged. Be changed.

 

Program Options

Journalism is not about collecting facts—it is about storytelling. It is a front-row ticket to the circus of life, to experience the world as it happens. It is a backstage pass to history – in which you write the first draft. You are not in a cubicle; the world is your cubicle.

You'll learn journalism from people with experience—Lee Pitts, Dordt’s journalism professor, has 15 years of journalism experience, including 7 months as a reporter in the Iraq War and 10 years covering politics in Washington, D.C.
