Rhodes College's origins can be traced back to the Masonic University of Tennessee, which was established in 1848. It became the Southwestern Presbyterian University in 1875 and the Southwestern at Memphis in 1945. Eventually, the institute was named Rhodes College in 1984. The sprawling 100-acre campus is located in Memphis, Tennessee, and it offers enrollment to more than 1,500 students every semester.
Rhodes College offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a variety of subjects. Continuing education and study abroad programs are also available. Students can choose from courses in the disciplines of art, sciences, music, history, international studies, computer science, psychology, theater, religious studies and literature, among others.
