Honors Program

[RSC Honors Program] 

The Russell Sage College Honors Program offers highly-motivated students an innovative, rigorous, and participatory educational experience. The program challenges women to be engaged contributors and leaders within the academic community. A member of the National Collegiate Honors Council, the RSC Honors Program is designed to:

  • Enrich any course of study at Sage, including signature programs such as the Discovery Degree.
  • Deliver Honors coursework in a variety of pedagogical modes to foster intellectual and creative risk-taking, the examination of diverse knowledge, and trans-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving and research.
  • Provide Honors-related academic advising from the Honors director, faculty, and Associate Dean of Academic Advising.
  • Promote women's engaged scholarship and leadership on local and global levels through conference participation, service-learning, and study abroad.
  • Deepen the intellectual community at RSC through Honors-sponsored lectures, colloquia, and other events.

  • Students receive a customized Honors sash for graduation.
  • In recognition of our institution's founder and her commitment to the advancement of women's education, Honors graduates receive the following distinction on their transcripts: "Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage Scholar."
