SUMMIT reinvents a liberal arts education for the 21st century by preparing every student to be an effective change agent in a global society. Guided by a personal board of advisors, every student, regardless of major, designs an individualized course of study and co-curricular experiences that develop leadership abilities and understanding of complex global dynamics. Equipped with a rigorous liberal arts and sciences education, an understanding of complex global issues and the ability to lead strategically and honorably, Agnes Scott graduates are ready to scale the next SUMMIT.
All Agnes Scott students complete coursework and experiences focused on the acquisition of five essential leadership skills – critical thinking, writing, public speaking, teamwork and digital literacy - and reflect on what it means to be an honorable leader.
Those who elect to complete the Leadership Development Specialization augment this foundational work with a personalized slate of courses in Leadership Studies, practical leadership experiences, and additional skills development. Completion of the specialization is noted on their transcript.
Every Agnes Scott student completes introductory course work and a faculty-led study tour focused on understanding complex global dynamics.
Students who elect to complete the Global Learning Specialization further hone their understanding of global structures, systems and processes through advanced course work and immersion experiences, leading to a notation on their transcript.
As students blaze their unique paths to the SUMMIT, they benefit from the expertise of not just one, but four advisors - a SUMMIT Advisor, a Peer Advisor, a Major Advisor and a Career Mentor.
A self-curated virtual space in which students collect artifacts from, reflect upon, and showcase selected aspects of their unique learning journey.
