The Urban Studies program at the Rhodes College gives you the opportunity to learn from and contribute to the rich, diverse culture and history of Memphis. Rhodes lies at the crux of Midtown and East Memphis, and the college partners with over 400 businesses and non-profits in the Memphis and larger Shelby County area through research, internships, and other forms of engagement.
The Urban Studies Program enables students to explore and understand the urban experience in its richness and complexity. It provides an interdisciplinary learning experience grounded in the liberal arts and connected to concerns of the region and the world.
Through integrative teaching and research, students develop and apply the skills needed to analyze the dynamic processes and structures of urban life as well the ways that cities contribute to global change. Students engage fully with Memphis and the diversity of the Mid-south region, combining course work with urban field experiences including internships, fellowships, and research with community partners.
