The Beginning of an Amazing Journey

As one of the two central themes of Summit, Agnes Scott defines global as structures, patterns and challenges that span the globe and shape human lives. For Scotties, the globe extends from our seat in the classroom to as far as a plane, train, or our own feet can take us! During your four years you will engage in global learning through courses, co-curricular activities, and study abroad experiences. But it doesn’t stop here! Scotties have a long tradition of continuing their global engagement through studying, working, and living abroad.
