“Global” at Agnes Scott College means far more than “study abroad.”

Make no mistake: you will have plenty of opportunities to explore various parts of the world—both close to campus and far afield. In fact, a distinctive feature of SUMMIT is that all students participate in a travel course during their very first year. This and the rest of the SUMMIT curriculum is carefully designed to provide much more than a tourist-level encounter with unfamiliar cultures. Instead, students build intercultural competencies invaluable in the workplace and beyond and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to address issues that affect people across the globe, regardless of where, in the world, they might be.
Ultimately, we want our students to become global citizens, ready for the world.
