Discrimination, Crime, and Poverty Policy

Discrimination, crime, and poverty are three major societal ills that federal, state, and local governments have sought to ameliorate through social and economic policies. This concentration investigates economic and social theories that illuminate the causes and persistence of these ills; the course work also assists students to examine and evaluate existing and potential public policies in this field.
