Defense Against the Dark Arts

Defence Against the Dark Arts (sometimes written as DADA) is a core subject. In this class students learn how to magically defend themselves against Dark Creatures, the Dark Arts, and other dark charms. Offensive magic is also taught in this class, such as how to duel, which requires the use of both offensive and defensive magic.

The lessons generally have a practical approach when possible/appropriate, with many of the teachers believing that when it comes to the Dark Arts a practical approach is the best way, with theoretical assignments given as homework.
