Course Description:

This is an introductory course providing an overview about the nature, extent, and causes of poverty in the United States and the world. Questions of race, gender, and spatial manifestation, as well as demographics, religious context, and anti-poverty policies will be addressed.

How This Course Benefits Students:

According to Understanding social problems (Mooney et al.:2011). poverty is going empty with no hope for the future. Students planning on missionary work must receive the necessary information and develop the best possible skills to seek the elimination of poverty.

Why This Course Is Important:

Poverty will not diminish overnight. It will continue to be of importance and many will continue living impoverished lives in urban areas around the world. Knowledge of poverty is a great opportunity to join God where He is working and with the hope and freedom that can be found in Him. We have the opportunity to join Him in His mission.
