Your Global Journey

During your first semester Global Gateways sets the stage for your Spring semester course, Global Journeys, the core course in the Global Learning curriculum of Summit. Journeys continues the conversations started in Gateways with a focus on global structures, systems and patterns. These foci are supported by the common content shared across all Journeys sections, including shared readings and assignments. In addition to the common content, each section also has its own unique dynamic defined by the professor’s expertise and the section’s unique destination focus (keep reading for more on this!). Through readings, discussions with your classmates and professor, and assignments, you will be able to identify, describe, and evaluate critical assumptions that shape the discourse around global issues.

But now it’s time to apply what you’ve learned: during a week-long cultural immersion, you will travel with your classmates and faculty leader to your section’s destination. During this travel experience you will deep-dive into the destination’s rich cultural and history and use the skills learned in Gateways and Journeys to critically analyze your experience. Aside from the cost of a passport and souvenirs, your Journeys Cultural Immersion is expense-free to you.
