Integration at the Core: Engaged Learning in Rhodes’ Interdisciplinary Courses


The core curriculum at Rhodes College exposes students to a course sequence that explores history and culture through an interdisciplinary lens. Rhodes also has a tradition of engaging students in the community in order to connect their academics with civic and experiential learning. With support from a BT2P Program Development Grant, the college intertwined these two elements of the Rhodes education, embedding experiential and community-based learning into the core curriculum required of all students.  Faculty re-evaluated and rewrote the shared Instructors Guide for foundational courses, creating a formal connection between the core curriculum and community engagement in both faculty preparation and student experience.
