What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
Classes are pretty tough. Be prepared to spend some days in the library when all you really want to do is go to the beach or Kappa field. However, if you succeed academically, you'll go pretty damn far.
Jessica from Saint Petersburg, FL
The endless amount of options at this school make it hard to decide on one major, but Eckerd is generally a science based school. Instead of taking general education credits at this liberal arts school you have to take seven different perspectives before graduating.
Michelle from Crystal Lake, IL
Eckerd College is a very abroad and competitive school.
As a marine science student the classes are very challenging the whole four years, but its less strenuous for other majors.
Christian from East Point, GA
largely depends on which area you're majoring in. marine science and other science majors involve very intensive courses that you won't find elsewhere. these classes will however greatly prepare you for a career in these majors. one of the top majors, environmental studies, is similar to the science majors but considerably less rigorous, however still intensive and still very rewarding. other popular majors are psychology and creative writing.
Mattie from St. Petersburg, FL
The adjustment from high school to college is going to be a challenge at first, but the small class sizes make it a lot easier. The professor's actually know your name and are willing to help you with anything you need.
