Studying Poverty

At UC Berkeley, students from all areas of study are signing up for the university's fastest growing minor, "Global Poverty and Practice". The program became available just 2 years ago, and it gives students the knowledge and experience necessary to fight global poverty. The minor's signature course, "Global Poverty: Challenges & Hopes in the New Millennium," fills up an auditorium of 480 people, with a waiting list of about 200 other interested students. As the program expands even further, maybe other universities across the country will notice, and begin establishing similar areas of study.
