The Rosemont Difference
Each Rosemont student participates in a special assessment program at the beginning of their first year to evaluate academic skills, personality traits, and learning styles. The findings are reviewed individually with each student and lead to the creation of a personalized learning plan that gives students a better understanding of their abilities, serves as a touchstone to chart academic growth and progress, and helps foster success at Rosemont and beyond.
Learning without limits
Rosemont’s core values are:
- Trust in and reverence for the dignity of each person
- Diversity in human culture and experience
- Persistence and courage in promoting justice with compassion.
Rosemont encourages students to meet diversity and change with confidence. Roughly 53 percent of the students at Rosemont are minority students.
Traditional undergraduate students can choose from twenty-seven academic majors. There are two components to a Rosemont education: the curriculum and experiential learning. Students must complete the curriculum for their major as well as at least one related experiential component such as service learning, an internship, or study abroad in order to graduate.
Rosemont students have the opportunity to study abroad for a summer, a semester, or a year. Recently, students have traveled to England, Italy, France, Ireland, Greece, Cuba, India, and Australia.
With small classes, Rosemont professors often teach “on location.” That can mean anything from the plethora of cultural and educational sites in Philadelphia or in a foreign country, studying everything from policy to languages.
The student body is comprised of more than 400 undergraduate students, with a student faculty ratio of 10:1 and an average class size of 12. This allows for more personal classroom attention. Approximately 75 percent of full-time faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field.
Rosemont offers many opportunities to grow, from involvement in student organizations and clubs, to athletics, to service to the community.

- Philadelphia is only a twenty-minute train ride from campus, and the school’s close proximity to the city provides students with plenty of cultural and social opportunities, such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Philadelphia Orchestra; the Pennsylvania Ballet; and sporting events such as Phillies, Flyers, and Eagles games. There are also shops, movie theaters, restaurants, and bookstores located within walking distance of the campus.
- Rosemont is a member of the NCAA Division III in 13 sports.
Through coursework, internships, service, and study abroad, Rosemont students learn to apply classroom concepts to real-life situations. The Office of Career Services helps students prepare to search for jobs and enter the professional world, hosting events throughout the year including an annual Career Bootcamp. Approximately 8,000 living Rosemont alumni can be found in high-ranking positions in science and medicine, publishing, politics, business, education, law, and the arts.
