Course content

Demography is the study of human populations, their size, density and distribution. Discover how to gather and analyse demographic data and population change on our MSc Demography degree. You’ll explore historical and current population trends in developing and developed countries and the social and economic impact of demographic change.

Graduates from this programme will be equipped to undertake quantitative analysis to support social policymaking locally, nationally and internationally in the health and social care professions, market research, local and national government departments, international organisations and the many other agencies that require a sound demographic analysis for decision-making. We welcome students with limited background in quantitative methods.
