The World for Women

The Center for Global Learning is where global learning really takes flight (or boat, or foot, or bike!) As a center theme of Summit, global learning at Agnes Scott College equips Scotties to understand and navigate our increasingly “global” world. Today we all encounter an exhilarating and overwhelming range of people, ideas, cultures, and commodities. Your experiences during your years at Agnes Scott will prepare you to translate those encounters as an student and as a leader.

Every Scottie attains a foundational understanding of complex global dynamics through our first-year curriculum and co-curriculum and the rich composite of international perspectives on campus. After that, students can elect to pursue more in-depth learning through a breadth of study abroad independent and faculty-led opportunities, the Global Learning specialization, and/or advanced co-curricular events. The Center for Global Learning coordinates all of these learning opportunities as well as provides services for international students.
