Dordt offers online bachelor’s degree

New online bachelor's degree ideal for adult learners

Dordt University is now accepting applications for its first online undergraduate degree program in business administration with an emphasis in business management.

This program is designed with working adults in mind, offering part-time coursework that allows students to take two courses per semester. Also, the courses are 100 percent online.

“Dordt decided to pursue an online bachelor’s program to serve a new demographic of students,” says Joe Bakker, director of online education at Dordt. “There are many people—often working adults—who are interested in earning a bachelor’s degree but are unable to come to campus as a full-time student.”

Dr. Brian Hoekstra, professor of business, is excited to expand Dordt’s reach to include adult learners.

“The online undergraduate degree program will help working adults to shape their thoughts of how to do business in God-glorifying ways,” he says. “This option will help them to immediately apply what they are learning, to grow into new roles through new opportunities, and to impact the kingdom in new, creative ways. It’s exciting to be a small part of that.”

“In this program, students will develop their leadership skills in business through the lens of God’s Word,” adds Bakker. “The program challenges students to engage in the day-to-day activities of their career grounded in how the truth of a Reformed worldview must permeate all that they do.”
