Prepare yourself for a lifetime of learning.

Our vision of a liberal education balances rigorous classroom academics with the challenge of putting these lessons into action. At Rhodes, you’ll be encouraged to engage in research, leadership and service opportunities—and to take responsibility for shaping your educational experience to meet your personal interests and goals.

You may choose from traditional majors or interdisciplinary fields of study.

Because our goal is to graduate students with the ability to transform their communities, we offer a variety of degree options—as well as opportunities for pre-professional and dual-degree programs, study abroad and honor societies. And because of our rigorous academic programs, Rhodes graduates have an exceptionally high rate of acceptance into graduate schools and professional programs.
