MLA Citation Style
MLA (Modern Language Association) is a common citation style for English and other Humanities classes. As opposed to APA (American Psychological Association), MLA features a heavy focus on the original author’s words (direct quotes, etc.). This is less common in science focused styles such as APA, but consistent with the subject matter of classes focused on language, such as English and the Humanities.
