Offerings in the arts and humanities inspire creativity and foster critical thinking and self-awareness. Every year, a significant number of our students travel with their faculty leaders outside the U.S.

In addition, 1,000 students are enrolled in the Program for Experienced Learners, a bachelor's degree program for adult learners. Eckerd's Leadership Development Institute for executives, Academy of Senior Professionals, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and Road Scholar program identify the College as a national leader of innovative programs in continuing education and lifelong learning.
