Some of her course topics include Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare, Fundamentals of Social Work Practice I, and Human Behavior in the Social Environment I.

During January Term, Professor Rhodes leads a course in which students travel abroad to Northern Ireland and examine the difficult yet inspiring Northern Ireland peace process through the lives of its participants.
