UNDERGRADUATE MINOR IN DEMOGRAPHY
Demography is the scientific study of human populations. It is an interdisciplinary field that examines the causes and consequences of health and mortality, population aging, migration, fertility, maternal and child health, interactions between human populations and the environment, and population growth and decline.
Students working toward a minor in demography within the Department of Health and Behavioral Sciences (HBS) will acquire focused training in theories and methods of demography. The minor will help students develop important skills in critical thinking and quantitative reasoning, and will prepare them for graduate level training in demography or related fields and for jobs requiring an understanding of population dynamics. Demographers are frequently employed in occupations including academia, risk assessment, marketing, consulting, nonprofits, and various local, state and federal government agencies.
