The College is known for its excellent academic reputation and its focus on developing the intellectual, spiritual, and emotional well being of each student.
Over the year’s Rosemont has evolved to “meet the wants of the age,” by developing as one college with three schools: the Undergraduate College and the Schools of Graduate and Professional Studies.
On May 30, 2008 the Board of Trustees of Rosemont College approved a Strategic Plan which emphasized and expanded the College’s enrollment, programs, and reputation by embracing co-education, partnerships, and online education. In 2009, the College opened its doors at the undergraduate level to all interested and qualified women and men in the, unifying the College’s three schools and expanding the College’s mission of being a ‘community of learners’. That same year, the Schools of Graduate and Professional received accreditation to offer fully online degree programs from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education Studies.
Rosemont enriches its offerings through an extensive collaboration with many of its neighboring educational institutions such as Villanova University, Eastern University, Cabrini College, Immaculata University, and others. Rosemont has established partnerships through articulation agreements with Drexel and Temple Universities to offer pre-med, dual-degree and honor programs.
The College reaches out to the community by offering a variety of non-credit programs and a unique “Forum” program for men and women of all ages, in addition to on campus art exhibitions and cultural programs.
Rosemont is committed to preparing individuals to meet the challenges of the times and to act responsibly and effectively in an ever-changing world.
