Introduction to Poverty Studies

PS 23000: Introduction to Poverty Studies

PS 23000 is a seminar course offered every Fall semester to students who are officially enrolled in the minor.

This gateway course introduces students to academic research about the nature, causes, and consequences of poverty. Throughout, the readings and lectures reveal the collaboration across the various disciplines, enhances our understanding of what it means to be poor and of the array of interlocking problems that lead to poverty, and guides the formulation of policies to prevent and alleviate poverty. Equal emphasis is given to poor citizens of the United States and developing nations. 

If you are interested in becoming a poverty studies minor and enrolling in Introduction to Poverty Studies, contact Connie Mick, PSIM director.
