Core Skills

Blue circle with an orange and a green gear insideMastering Core Skills is the most important thing students can do to get through their college career. The First Year Connections Seminar introduces students to college life and to the Rosemont community while also teaching them how to do well in class, build strong friendships, and form bonds with faculty who will personally guide them through their Rosemont Experience. In First Year Composition, students master how to write a quality paper­—everything from picking a research question and forming a thesis to organizing it and finding the best sources. Students build on these skills in Advanced Composition and Oral Communication, in which emphasis is placed on public speaking to conquer fears and clearly convey ideas.
