Student Work & Research

The department sponsors two student publications representing the best of student fiction and nonfiction. Students play significant roles on the editorial staffs of both journals.

  1. Magnificat: A Journal of Undergraduate Nonfiction is blueinkpublished once a year, and it represents the strongest student essays crafted as assignment responses.
  2. blueInk, Marymount’s annual creative journal, publishes poetry, fiction, and visual art.

Marymount’s prime location in the Washington area provides access to a variety of resources that enhance the educational experience for those studying English and Literature. Research Facilities available include:

  • Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC): Marymount belongs to WRLC, the Washington area’s consortium of university libraries, which includes Georgetown University, the Catholic University of America, American University, Gallaudet University, George Mason University, George Washington University, and the University of the District of Columbia. The WRLC makes the shared resources of these institutions easily available to all Marymount students. Not only can you request materials through our library, you can also check materials out directly by visiting in person. Just remember your MUID card!
  • Folger Shakespeare Library: The premier research institution in Shakespeare and Renaissance studies is located in Washington, DC.

"One of the biggest ways in which my experience at Marymount has impacted my path today is that it helped me maintain an active drive and determination to achieve my goals. I had some difficult times while working towards completing my degree, and many times it would have been easier to give up; but the programs, support of staff, and professors at Marymount helped me keep sight of what I wanted to achieve.
