Mallory Coley, Ph.D. currently teaches as a full-time lecturer/instructor for the English Language and Literature Department at St. Mary’s University. In this capacity, she has taught undergraduate English courses and graduate English as well as Communication graduate and under graduate courses too. 

Her teaching style relies on discussion and lecture as well as group work and her philosophy for teaching is simple: when you show your passion, there’s a good chance the student will become passionate too. Dr. Coley’s aim is to show students how the liberal arts environment connects so many disciplines with each other.

In her literature classes, Dr. Coley brings in a cultural ideological approach to the course work, relying on her acumen in post-modern theory to help flesh out the time periods being studied.
