A Broad Education for Wherever Life Takes You

Russell Sage College’s School of Arts and Sciences prepares students for careers in the arts, government, non-profit agencies and corporations, as well as for further study in a range of fields. Many of our programs are interdisciplinary — students complement the core courses in their program with electives in a variety of subjects. Several linked and accelerated programs make it possible to complete a bachelor’s degree and a graduate degree in less time than it would take to pursue the degrees individually.

“One of the great things about a small college like Sage is that we get to know each other as people, and we help each other out. “

Andrea Rehn
