Department of Demography

Academic Programs



The Department of Demography offers MA and Ph.D. degrees in Demography.  Graduate students take core courses in demography and additional coursework in other departments. 

Undergraduates may take a minor in Demography (no major) to prepare them for graduate school in demography and other social sciences; and careers in areas such as policy and government.

In addition, we encourage students and others to take courses in demography.  Those wishing to study without pursuit of a degree may do so in the Concurrent Enrollment program.
