Professor Tonya Moutray With English Students

B.A. in English

Russell Sage College offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, as well as a minor in English.

The B.A. in English provides students with a broad foundation in literature in English, including British and American literature, through a number of survey courses and then allows students considerable individual choice from a rich array of courses that add depth to their programs. All English courses value and hone analytical, writing and speaking skills; thus, an English major is excellent preparation for careers in business, law, medicine, and education, as well as for graduate study in literature. Wondering what you can do with a degree in English in the twenty-first century? Read “What Can I Do With An English Degree?” Find out what our graduates are doing.

We also cooperate with the Education Program to offer the Bachelor of Science degree in English/Childhood Education with optional annotation in Middle Childhood Education. Students planning to teach grades 7-12 may complete the B.A. in English.  Students who intend to enter the professional Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy program may complete the B.A. in English, leading to the Doctor of Physical Therapy or the M.S. in Occupational Therapy.
