A Greeting From the Dean of Russell Sage

RSC DeanAt Russell Sage College, we take great pride in the education we have provided to women for almost a century.  As a premiere liberal arts college in the Northeastern United States, we offer a transformative educational experience that begins in the first year.   Our students have the benefit of learning in small classes taught by faculty members who are committed to helping students broaden their interests and discover their passion for learning. 

The education students receive at Russell Sage College prepares them for the future by emphasizing critical skills such as writing, speaking, leadership, teamwork, creative and imaginative thinking, as well as critical analysis and problem solving.  Recognizing that we live in an increasingly global society, our curriculum is designed to increase students’ intercultural knowledge and awareness of global issues.  Through a combination of an innovative curriculum, campus and community activities, and engagement with faculty, students are immersed in an interdisciplinary environment designed to foster their personal, professional, and intellectual growth.  We are especially excited about our new general education program that includes the WORLD (Women Owning Responsibility for Learning and Doing) sequence of courses designed to create a Woman of Influence, ready to lead, succeed, and continue to learn.

I invite you to visit our campus in the historic district of Troy, NY, to learn more about Russell Sage College and the exceptional education we provide to students. In the meantime, please explore our website to learn more about our academic programs, the WORLD curriculum, our Honors Programs, Study Abroad, as well as internship and undergraduate research opportunities.
