Where do you want to be next?

Canoeing the Ghost swamp of the Wolf River or conducting ground-breaking research at world-renowned St. Jude Children′s Research Hospital?

Counseling underprivileged patients at the Church Health Center or exploring the game parks of Namibia?

Discovering new genes as a part of the Lynx Genome Project or engaging in stimulating classroom discussions with award-winning professors?

Tutoring children at one of our neighborhood Learning Corridor schools or shadowing an anesthesiologist during open-heart surgery?

Helping hospitals contain costs in handling of infectious materials in El Salvador or monitoring panda behavior at the Memphis Zoo?

The answer is easier than you think; you want to be at Rhodes!

From the very start, Rhodes Biology students are practicing Biologists.

These are just some of the ways that we regularly engage Biology majors. It happens as a result of the dedicated work of our diverse faculty who use effective classroom teaching methods, maintain active research programs, and foster a wide range of partnerships in Memphis and beyond. Explore our pages to learn more about us, our classes, and these and more opportunities. Then, use our contact link to ask any questions that remain. We hope you′ll be one of our next practicing biologists.
