The "Practice Experience" is a central component of the Minor in which students partner with domestic or international 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. The combination of the the coursework for the Minor and this real world experience allows students to connect theories and practices of poverty action. Funding is available to support students’ practice experiences.
The deadline to declare the Minor this semester is Wednesday, October 5th. There are no prerequisites required to declare.
