Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures.
The faculty of the Department of Modern Languages of the University of Mary Washington join with our students and colleagues across campus to state unequivocally that Black Lives Matter. We affirm our support of racial equality and social justice, and we stand against brutality and abuse of power locally, nationally, and worldwide. As a department teaching the cultures of seven languages, we embrace diversity in our faculty, our students and our curriculum, and we pledge to continue our work promoting understanding among peoples of the world.
