All scholars take HONS 335, Wealth and Poverty, at the end of their junior year for three credits. It involves a three-week trip to Hong Kong, China and Sabah, Malaysia, giving students first hand experience with the extremes of global development. This class explores the causes and consequences of wealth and poverty globally from the viewpoint of the disciplines of economics, sociology and religion. It then explores possible responses to the disparities of wealth and poverty. Scholars recieve a $2,000 scholarship for study abroad, which may be applied to this course.
