In collaboration with community partners and in keeping with Rhodes’ continuing commitment to academic excellence, the Educational Studies Program strives to:
- provide opportunities for students to engage in the study of education as an interdisciplinary field of inquiry and advocacy;
- prepare educators, advocates, and thought leaders to provide service and leadership in culturally diverse, economically challenged educational systems and communities;
- provide students with unique opportunities as a leading liberal arts college situated in the heart of a resource-rich urban setting.
Licensure to teach is not offered currently through Rhodes; however, we work with local and regional schools and alternative certification programs to ensure that all of our students who want to teach can pursue licensure.
