General Education Curriculum

gen-ed

Rosemont College’s General Education Curriculum combines a carefully chosen selection of classes with 21st century educational practices to most effectively prepare graduating students for the future. Rosemont doesn’t just train students for the workplace; it cultivates students’ cultural, religious and artistic sensibilities in order to improve the quality of their lives. Students develop a sense of social responsibility and strong intellectual and practical skills that span all areas of study, and a demonstrated ability to apply everything they’ve learned in real-world settings. 

Five Perennial Questions:

  1. What skills do we need to function effectively in today’s society (both local and global)?
  2. Why is human culture so diverse, and what can we learn by studying the ways of others?
  3. Why is knowledge of the ideas and practices of natural science and mathematics essential to our lives?
  4. How should we live our lives, and how should we treat others?
  5. How can we transform what we learn in our lifetimes into actions that improve the quality of both our lives and the lives of others?
