From the Rosemont Blog

The Honors Program at Rosemont College is an elite section of education at Rosemont where students have the opportunity to excel in the realm of academia. There are a few perks to being a member of the Honors Program at Rosemont.

  1. Smaller class sizes: I know, hearing that Rosemont has an average class size is 12 and then hearing “but you can have smaller!” seems a little over the edge, I know. Speaking from experience, however, I can tell you that my favorite classes have been my Honors classes with three other people. Those smaller classes just help me get more out of the class and the course material.

  2. Extracurricular learning opportunities: With the Honors Program, students are given the opportunity to learn in ways in correlation or entirely separate from their current courses. In conjunction with current courses, students are able to take another credit for a certain course and do outside learning such as going to a museum for credit hours. This happens with courses such as Honors History of Art. You get four (4) credits for one class and get to do some hands on learning while you’re at it! The Program itself offers trips every so often to museums and the like in order to provide a more well rounded education for students. These trips are open to all in the Program.

  3. Guest lecturers: Rosemont has many guest lecturers throughout the academic year. These lectures often feature lively discussion and interesting subject matter. Students often go to these lectures at the suggestion of their professors. Honors students go to the events and write a short, insightful response to the event—we call them “write-ups”—and get Honors credit for every response that they submit.

  4. Special diploma: At the end of their tenure at Rosemont, Honors students have an additional line put on their diploma stating that they successfully surmounted the academic challenges of the Honors Program. This additional recognition looks great on your diploma, not only to prospective employers, but, more importantly, to you and your family.

This is just a brief overview of what the Honors Program at Rosemont College can offer! If you have any questions or comments, drop a line to the director of the Honors Program: Dr. Marilyn Moller at mmoller@rosemont.edu or leave your comments below!
