At Dordt College, you’ll study under professors who feel the excitement and value of literature. They’ll help you analyze and evaluate literary works from a Christian perspective, considering the moral vision and worldview of an author, along with the literary elements of his or her work.
They’ll help you become both critical and charitable in the way you approach words and the world. You’ll examine how authors use language to create imagined worlds and communicate meaning. You will see how literature from a variety of time periods and cultures challenges or affirms our values and enriches our lives.
