"As a history major at Rosemont College, my coursework prepared me to successfully conduct original research in archives. The results of that research were published in an academic journal! Now as an Archives Assistant at the Legacy Center, I apply those same skills to assisting academic researchers in their projects."

"The History major prepared me for my career in so many ways.  I gained research skills needed to explore and solve my clients’ marketing problems. My digital humanities course allowed me to develop facility in web design. By the time I graduated, I had the ability to present research to a broad audience in a meaningful digital story.  Those transferable skills led to my first job after graduation."

"Rosemont prepared me for law school by setting me lightyears ahead of my peers when it came to research skills. My coursework gave me the skills to dig deeper into older research and archives.
