Professional Focus: Robert Morris University Professional Focus | Robert Morris University

Professional Focus


The social sciences programs at RMU combine an education in the liberal arts with a professional focus that matters for students.

It's the best of both worlds for students: a liberal arts education at a University that prides itself in preparing students for their careers.

The out-of-the-classroom engagement opportunities prepare students to be working professionals.

All programs require a practicum at a site related to the student’s career interests.

Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, and there are close ties with professional communities, providing valuable connections for our students.
