ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

Overview

Dordt College is one of the few places where you can spend two years on the campus of a comprehensive Christian college while you prepare for a career as an administrative assistant. You’ll receive top-notch technical training and become part of a Christian community of new friends who are training for engineering, teaching, accounting, healthcare, and other careers. You will find friendships that may last a lifetime and gain a new sense of God’s calling in your life.

Core courses such as English, history, theology, and communication are an important part of your training. You’ll not only develop specific job skills, you’ll learn how to think critically, how to understand issues, and how to articulate your values. These characteristics will make you a stronger person and also a more confident and capable employee. Employers look for intelligent and responsible problem solvers with good computer skills who are able to take initiative in their work. Dordt A.A. graduates are able to provide those qualities.

Our facilities are excellent. Most classes are taught in a classroom computer lab, where you’ll have a personal computer as a tool—just like on the job. Our computers are replaced regularly and run the latest Microsoft software and other popular state-of-the-art business applications. Labs are networked and Internet-enabled to allow easy access to information, communication, and your personal data files.

The business department regularly surveys our alumni to find out about the programs and equipment they are using in the workplace to make sure that you will have the tools you need as you begin your career.
