Academic Major Spotlight on: History
Agnes Scott’s SUMMIT experience is front and center in the History major program. The History faculty bring an international perspective to their work, and have led student trips to Ghana, Germany, Poland, Gambia, France and Switzerland. The History major, at its base, is about deepening students’ understanding of the human experience in its multiple facets.
Academic Major Spotlight on: Business Management
The Agnes Scott difference is something that is apparent in the Business Management major, according to Dr. Tom Will, Associate Professor of Business Management. “Majoring in Business Management at Agnes Scott immerses students in a more personalized experience than they would obtain at a large business school. Small, interactive class sessions enable students to really get to know their peers and their professors. We consider the major not merely informative, but transformative.”
SCALE: Preparing Students for the Future
SCALE, the Sophomore Class Atlanta Leadership Experience, is a critical piece of Agnes Scott’s distinctive SUMMIT program. During this week-long experience, all Agnes Scott sophomores complete an externship at Atlanta-area businesses and non-profit organizations to focus on leadership, collaboration and career development skills. Some notable establishments our Scotties have worked with are AT&T, Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta Community Food Bank and BlackRock.
A Year in SUMMIT
As we entered the school year in August 2021, it was with high hopes that students would be able to return to the full SUMMIT experience that makes Agnes Scott unique. While adjustments had to be made and flexibility remains the name of the game, students at Agnes Scott this year took full advantage of the SUMMIT experience.
