Core Skills

The key to college success is mastering a set of skills that can get you through your college career. The Core Skills field does just that! Starting with the First Year Connections Seminar, first-year students are introduced to college life and the Rosemont Community. They learn the basics a college student needs to do well in class, build strong friendships with fellow classmates, and form bonds with faculty who will personally guide you through your experience at Rosemont. 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, which places an emphasis on public speaking to conquer your fears and clearly get your ideas across. The Core Skills field may be one of the most important you’ll take your entire college career.
