Global Journeys 2021 Courses Announced

The Center for Global Learning is excited to present the Global Journeys courses for Spring 2021! We know that many of you have been waiting eagerly for this moment, and so have we. As the COVID pandemic keeps impacting global travel, the Journeys faculty and our providers have worked hard to adapt the courses. Global learning is more important than ever, and we want to make sure that all of you receive the introduction into global learning that enables you to become the global leaders the world needs.

All Journeys courses feature a domestic U.S. destination that groups will visit if travel is possible and also a set of global site connections that faculty and students will engage with through interactive, virtual learning formats. This course design provides flexibility and mitigates the risks while also ensuring that all students will progress in their academic trajectory with a rich and meaningful global immersion experience.

With this strong foundation in global learning, all students will be ready to engage in subsidized faculty-led Global Study Tours and award-funded semester-long study abroad throughout their time at Agnes Scott and as soon as international travel will be feasible again.

See the map overview of Journeys courses below and click here for more detailed information. (Turn on the sidebar and you can turn on/off the different layers showing the Preliminary Global Immersion destinations and the Global Site Connections.)

Congratulations to three ASC Fulbright Semifinalists

Congratulations to three Agnes Scott students for being named semifinalists for a prestigious Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship:

Abisola James (Taiwan)
Alice Mawi (Turkey)
Alexis Turek (Taiwan)

All three have been selected from over 9,000 applications nation-wide and their applications will now be vetted by committees in the respective destination countries.

Applying for a Fulbright teaching or research award is an intense but highly rewarding opportunity. Successful Fulbright grantees will join a global network of scholars, researchers, and professionals and will greatly enhance their prospects for graduate school and job applications. Regardless of the outcome, the Fulbright application process is one of the best and most meaningful ways to practice for all kinds of post-college applications.

Current Juniors — Fulbright is for you! The application process starts in April of your junior year, the grant itself starts after your graduation! The next information session will be held on Friday, February 14, 2-3pm in Buttrick Hall G-4. Please e-mail Gundolf Graml with any questions.
