Global Poverty Minor
Agricultural and Resource Economics (AREC)

The Global Poverty minor develops an awareness and understanding of the dimensions of global poverty, its causes and consequences, and the scope of policies aimed at poverty alleviation. Students will discover how incentives, resources, and social and political institutions influence the incidence of poverty across and within countries. Students in the minor will explore the relationships between poverty and determinants of human welfare such as hunger, health, education and environmental quality.
