As a predominantly undergraduate college, Rhodes offers unique programs and personalized counseling for students who plan to pursue advanced degrees. Designated faculty members guide students through application for the major postgraduate scholarships. Others provide mentoring for those entering programs in law, medicine, ministry and others. Rhodes students enjoy an exceptionally high rate of acceptance into graduate and professional programs.
Through the Master’s in Accounting and Dual Degree programs, students may also work toward graduate degrees during their studies at Rhodes. Rhodes College students majoring in Commerce and Business or Economics/Commerce and Business or non-Rhodes students majoring in Accounting may earn the M.S. in Accounting in two additional semesters. In the dual degree programs, students receive a master’s degree from another institution, along with a bachelor’s from Rhodes, after taking extra courses to fulfill requirements. Two programs take advantage of the college’s relationship with Vanderbilt University.
