Poverty and Social Justice Minor

What is the poverty and social justice minor?

The mission of the Poverty and Social Justice program at Elon is to educate students about the multiple causes and structural nature of poverty so that they might work more effectively toward its end. Through coursework and an internship, students from any major can learn about how citizens can understand, encounter, and advocate for the poor, both in the U.S. and globally.

The program includes introductory and capstone courses, as well as 3 courses chosen from a list of courses offered in Elon College and the professional schools. PSJ minors will all complete an internship during the fall, spring, and summer sessions at an affiliated partner organization.
