What better way to learn to live as a citizen of the global community than to experience it for yourself? Through taking the Wealth and Poverty class—typically a three-week study tour visiting Hong Kong, China and Malaysia—you’ll discover first-hand alternative perspectives and the disparity in lifestyles that exist around the world.
This class, and its prerequisite, explores the causes and consequences of wealth and poverty through the disciplines of economics, sociology and religion. Students are then encouraged to explore their responses to the gap between wealth and poverty. Scholars recieve a $2,000 scholarship for study abroad, which may be applied to this course.
