Program Description:

This dual-title degree program is offered as an option to graduate major programs in three colleges: Agricultural Sciences, Health and Human Development, and the Liberal Arts. The option enables students from diverse graduate programs to attain and be identified with the content, techniques, methodology, and policy implications of demography, while maintaining a close association with areas of application. Through demography, students study (1) the size, composition, and distribution of the population; (2) changes in these characteristics; (3) the processes that determine these changes--fertility, migration, and mortality; and (4) their social, economic, and cultural causes and consequences.
