English (B.A.)

Russell Sage College offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in English, as well as minors in English and Writing.  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 BA in English, leading to the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT in English).  Students who intend to enter the professional Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy program may complete the BA in English, leading to the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) or the MS in Occupational Therapy.

Bachelor of Arts Degree in English

The BA in English provides students with a broad foundation in 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.
