Overview

The Ancient Studies curriculum at Eckerd spans a wide geographical range including the Mediterranean Basin, the Near East, China, Japan, and India. Chronologically, the curriculum focuses on historical periods spanning approximately 3300 BCE to 1300 CE. 

Because this initiative brings together several disciplines from the humanities and social sciences, it encourages unique collaborative and integrative approaches to liberal learning, providing majors with opportunities to think comparatively and to investigate specific cultures within larger geographical and temporal contexts.
