The Rosemont core curriculum contains an experiential education requirement for all students. To comply with this requirement, the Office of Experiential Learning coordinates internships, service learning, and study abroad experiences to assist students in their learning activities. The office is a resource for students in securing internships during the academic year and the summer. Further, the office participates with faculty in the evaluation of internship goals and learning outcomes.
The office also helps faculty incorporate Service Learning into their classes by developing contacts with community organizations. Service Learning relies on a pedagogy which involves cooperation between faculty, students and community organizations in an interactive learning experience. In an increasingly interdependent world, study abroad is an important and vital component of any educational experience. With the assistance of this office, students can explore a large variety of study abroad options.

The College encourages every student to at least consider taking an internship as part of the Rosemont Works experiential component. Information on credit and non-credit internships is available in the Office of Experiential Learning.
Full semester internships are student-initiated and can be arranged for qualified students in most disciplines with the approval of the faculty member in that field. Students should seek information from their mentors or the coordinator of Experiential Learning.
Credits for internships will be determined by the department based on duration and academic merit of the internship.
