Inequality Studies

With a minor in inequality studies, you’ll study the causes and consequences of inequality in income, wealth, political power, health, life expectancy, autonomy, happiness, security, social networks and other life conditions. You'll also learn how inequalities by race, ethnicity, gender, social class and family background are evolving in the U.S., in other advanced industrialized societies and in the developing world. The minor can be tailored to fit your specific topical interests and career goals. (The institutional home for the minor is the Center for the Study of Inequality.)
