Roseman utilizes a “Block Curriculum System,” rather than a traditional semester-and-quarter system, that emphasizes student-centered, active learning. The system allows students to concentrate on one subject at a time, enabling them to master the content more thoroughly. This system also requires that faculty teach using varied instructional activities for students, which supports active learning techniques and strategies and accommodates different learning styles to promote high achievement for all. The classrooms are designed to emphasize active and cooperative learning in an inclusive atmosphere with the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology.
In addition to the didactic component of the curriculum, all programs incorporate experiential learning at internal or external clinical sites. This allows students to see, feel and understand what is being presented in the classroom setting. Roseman University of Health Sciences is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, and each academic program is accredited or is a candidate for accreditation by its respective accrediting body.
