Some colleges fit students into their programs. At Dordt College, we don't believe in the one-size-fits-all approach to education.
We're flexible enough to help you custom-design a program of study to fit your needs. If you find that none of our programs are perfect for you, a tailor-made "individual studies major" may be exactly what you're looking for.
Our individual studies major allows you to combine courses from multiple majors in ways that suit your career goals. It also allows you to develop an interdisciplinary program of study around a broader area of interest. Together, you and your advisor will devise a 124-credit sequence that creates a unified program to fit your interests and your career goals. This will include the courses that make up Dordt's Core Program, a major consisting of at least 45 credits, and electives-all carefully selected to fit with your desired area of study. Your proposal must be approved by the registrar, who will also periodically review your progress toward your goal.
