Rhodes’ rigorous approach to liberal arts and sciences inspires students to discover and cultivate lifelong passions, and to make a difference in the classroom, on campus, in the city of Memphis, and throughout the world. Simply put, our mission is to prepare students to become essential in life and career, wherever those journeys take them.
We value the type of engaging dialogue that arises when students and professors work together to investigate questions and problems they care about.
Through 18 academic departments and 13 interdisciplinary programs, Rhodes offers more than 50 majors, interdisciplinary majors, minors, and academic programs.
