Shepherd Poverty Studies minor

A brief description of the undergraduate minor or concentration (2nd program):

The mission of the Shepherd Poverty Program is to understand and address poverty in ways that respect the dignity of every person. Students weave together poverty-related courses across campus (economics, education, law, philosophy, politics, sociology, and more) and hands-on service and internship experiences across the county, the country, and the world to supplement their major areas of study. Those pursuing a minor in poverty studies also undertake capstone research projects that connect their concerns about poverty and inequality with their future civic and professional lives.
