SUMMIT Global Journeys

SUMMIT Global Journeys

 

As part of their SUMMIT experience, each first-year student travels abroad or in the U.S. during the spring semester. Students are prepared to travel to these various destinations through their Gateways and Journeys courses. Gateways is the foundational global learning course all first-year students take introducing them to key concepts, issues, and ideas that span the globe. Each Journeys trip focuses on a particular area of study and during a week-long cultural immersion, students dive into each destinations' rich cultural history.  This year's Journeys destinations focused on the below key areas of study:

  • Journeys: Bulgaria - Transitions
  • Journeys: Chile - Visual Arts and Poetry in the Context of Dictatorship
  • Journeys: Costa Rica - Pura Vida (Enjoyment of Life)
  • Journeys: District of Columbia - Image and Contradiction in the DC We See
