Resources for Faculty

APA Formatting

APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences, to include the field of education. The Drury School of Education and Child Development requires use of APA formatting in all undergraduate and graduate courses. All education students are expected to follow the most current APA guidelines as presented by the Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab).
