At Eckerd College we believe that an international experience is an essential part of a liberal and liberating education.

This experience is an invaluable factor in a student's personal development, cross-cultural understanding, and appreciation for the issues that concern the global community.

This commitment to study abroad is expressed in the mission of the college and, in 1960, the academic calendar was specifically designed to create a time for students to study a single topic. This four-one-four calendar has become a model for other institutions throughout the country.

In November 2003 Eckerd College was named by the Chronicle of Higher Education as the number one baccalaureate institution in the nation with the highest proportion of students who study abroad during their undergraduate career.
