The purpose of the study was to determine and describe the social representations of Chilean university students about poverty, its causes and solutions. We used the technique of semantic network (Valdez, 1998), we applied the instrument to 121 students from the Faculties of Education and Humanities and Medicine of the University of La Frontera. The analyses were carried out based on values of the semantics network. The results indicate common contents in the social representations of both groups, probably nuanced by academic formation; we observed differences among students groups related to the importance that they assigned to historic and social factors. We discussed the results about structural aspects thoughts.
