The GPP Minor introduces students to the theoretical frameworks, methods, and practical skills necessary to engage with global poverty and inequality in imaginative and effective ways.
The "Practice Experience" is a central component of the Minor in which students partner for a minimum of five weeks, with non-governmental or community organizations, government agencies, or other poverty or development programs, on various dimensions of poverty action – from community health and food security to economic justice and grass-roots political power. This real world experience, which can take place domestically or internationally, allows students to connect theories and practices of poverty action. Fellowship funding is available to support students’ practice experiences.
The deadline to declare the Minor this semester is Wednesday, March 5th. There are no prerequisites to declare.
