They are two different, but somewhat related things. Agile is a methodology for software development where you easily adapt to change through iterative and incremental development. SCRUM is a tool that can be used during Agile development. SCRUM helps you organize your development, and it emphasizes communication to all parties involved within the development goal--including developers as well as stakeholders.

Scrum is just one of the many iterative and incremental agile software development method.

In the SCRUM methodology a sprint is the basic unit of development. Each sprint is preceded by a planning meeting, where the tasks for the sprint are identified and an estimated commitment for the sprint goal is made, and followed by a review or retrospective meeting where the progress is reviewed and lessons for the next sprint are identified. During each sprint, the team creates finished portions of a product.

In the Agile methods each iteration involves a team working through a full software development cycle, including planning, requirements analysis, design, coding, unit testing, and acceptance testing when a working product is demonstrated to stakeholders.

So if in a SCRUM sprint you perform all the software development phases (from requirement analysis to acceptance testing), and in my opinion you should, you can say SCRUM sprints correspond to AGILE iterations.

Agile software development is the abstract methodology or a philosophy. Scrum is a concrete agile method.
