Learning by doing is a major component of the digital media production program at Dordt College. Students in the program are introduced to digital nonlinear editing technology in Introduction to Film and Video Production. You will begin shooting and editing after a few weeks of practice on the lab's state-of-the-art cameras and post-production workstations.
Students work on semester projects in groups of two, with each person editing at his or her own work station. Each team has access to hundreds of gigabytes of drive space for the creation of video projects.
Advanced students can work with Dordt's production company, Prairie Grass Productions, on projects for corporate and non-profit clients, earning hands-on experience in producing video according to customer specifications.
The program also offers cross-disciplinary opportunities in courses like Acting for Film, Script Writing, and more.
Built on Dordt's excellent Core Program, graduates leave Dordt with marketable visual communication skills, a reel, and a Christian foundation that will help them make a positive contribution in the world of digital media production.
