Your Global Journey

Global Journeys is the interdisciplinary foundation of Agnes Scott’s global learning curriculum. Taught by professors from a wide range of majors, Global Journeys introduces students to the global patterns and systems that have shaped and continue to shape people’s lives. All sections of Global Journeys discuss four common topics: globalization; identity/self/other/culture; imperialism/colonialism/diaspora; ethics of travel. Each section also provides a unique perspective on global issues defined by the professor’s expertise and the section’s theme and travel destination. Readings, films, reflection activities, and on-site community engagement create a dynamic and interactive learning environment that forms the foundation for students’ global learning throughout their four years on campus.
