Amanda Scott is a native of St. George and proudly calls Dixie State her alma mater. She was part of the university’s first graduating class of English majors in 2007. She graduated with her M.A. in English (With Distinction) from Northern Arizona University in 2008 and earned her Ph.D. from The University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2016. Dr. Scott primarily teaches composition classes and values the opportunity to help her students develop their arguments and refine their ability to persuade others. Her research interests include Victorian Literature, didactic fiction, and Neo-Victorian literature. Her dissertation explored Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë’s use of visual rhetoric to convey how women empower their individualized views of religion through bodily, rather than purely textual, expression. Dr. Scott has been teaching at Dixie State since 2008.
