Our Mission

The English program at Russell Sage College values rigorous and relevant scholarship, active community engagement, and impactful creative expression. We are actively engaged in fostering a knowledge and appreciation of the richness of diverse literary texts as representations of human experience, as works of art, and as historical and cultural artifacts. The program seeks to cultivate critical thinking, sophisticated reading, powerful expression, and an understanding of the complexity and power of language. Our program empowers students to become reflective, engaged, confident, and ethical individuals who are prepared to successfully enter into professional life or graduate studies, who are life-long learners, and meaningful contributors to society.

English Learning Goals and Outcomes

The Modern Languages program operates two residential language centers as part of its teaching and co-curricular missions to Russell Sage College. Two Victorian brownstones on the Troy Campus, La Casa Espanola (Spanish House) and La Maison Francaise (French House/International House) have supported the multicultural development of more than three generations of Sage alumnae in all majors.
