Inequality Studies Minor

Program Description

The Inequality Studies minor is a joint collaboration between the Samuel DuBois Cook Center and the Department of History. The minor is a way for students to advance their understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality and pursue research around issues of social equity across a range of social science methods. The minor can be completed independent of or alongside a major in History, and inequality studies minors come from across departments in both the sciences and humanities.
