Our journalism course allows high school students to explore journalism and communications from a Biblical worldview and get hands-on experience doing reporting in multiple mediums!
WJI focuses on developing students' storytelling skills in print, digital, radio, and video. Keeping class sizes small, students receive line-by-line input on their stories from journalists with decades of reporting experience. This five-day camp is a great place to get a taste of life on a college campus, meet professors, and practice a craft in a chaperoned environment.
WJI and Dordt University’s mission of equipping the next generation to hold to Biblical truth has gone hand in hand for years. As an institution of higher education committed to the Reformed Christian perspective, Dordt University equips students, faculty, alumni, and the broader community to work toward Christ-centered renewal in all aspects of contemporary life. Located in Sioux Center, Iowa, Dordt is a comprehensive university named to the best college lists by U.S. News and World Report, the Wall Street Journal, Times Higher Education, Forbes.com, Washington Monthly, and Princeton Review.
Dordt University journalism, public relations, and communications professors will be leading the instruction. Activities and lessons will leave students with an experience they are not soon to forget!
*We are currently planning for this course to be in person on the Dordt University campus and will have healthy safety protocols in place.*
