The English Department supports the development of strong reading, speaking, and writing skills. We provide the skills students need to confidently read and interpret challenging texts, both classic and modern. Students expand their ability to speak critically through thoughtful class discussion. They also develop a personal writing style through extensive written work. We enrich our overall curriculum by implementing various types of media and technology instruction where appropriate. All of these allow an NDA graduate to reach her greatest potential in English.
