General Information About Sage College
As an integral part of the cultural and social dimensions of life at Russell Sage College, the Modern Languages Program endeavors to educate its students to look beyond the borders of the United States in global matters, and beyond the milieu of their family of origin by engaging them in community service. In surpassing the limitations of mono-culturalism through the acquisition of active social and language skills, students begin a journey of self-discovery that simply isn't possible from a monolingual standpoint. Something as simple as the motto: “Esse, scire, facere” is hardly rendered fully into the official English version that we now currently use: “To be, to know, to do.” During a key developmental phase in their lives, whether they are young adults or returning women, our students learn about the current state of culture in French-and Spanish-speaking nations of the world. One should be mindful that the mission of this program is not to train linguists, which would normally involve a graduate degree combined with study in other social sciences, such as anthropology. Rather, the mission is to lead the students to the stage where they may practice the target language until it becomes not a set of skills, but a part of a philosophy of life.
