Developmental Language Arts

The Developmental Language Arts department (formerly known as "Academic Foundations") teaches Integrated Reading & Writing. We are dedicated to providing access to all students wishing to achieve a college degree. We offer courses for students to cultivate the academic skills necessary to accomplish this goal. Both personal and academic counseling are also available to help ensure student success.

What can Developmental Language Arts help you with?

Developmental Language Arts (DLA) is a curriculum designed to enrich students' reading experiences and to enhance their ability to communicate effectively through writing. We recognize that students are the most important people on campus. Without them, there would be no need for the institution. As well, we strive to make DLA learning-centered instead of solely subject-centered. We work to adapt our teaching techniques to the learning styles of each student.

These classes might be for you if you'd like to learn how to:
  • Read critically.
  • Read strategically.
  • Write about texts for numerous purposes.
  • Write for different purposes, audiences, and contexts.
