The Department of Sociology invites you to explore our minor in Demography, the interdisciplinary study of human populations.


Changes in population processes have helped to shape many of the most pressing problems facing the world today. Whether one considers the key roles of population growth and aging. reflecting trends in fertility and mortality. or the impact of population flows through migration and immigration. demographic processes are fundamentally linked to the lives of individuals. families. communities and nations.


Training in demographic analysis provides students with important tools and perspectives for understanding social and economic changes. both locally and globally. The skills you gain are in high demand in public policy think tanks. government offices. and many other organizations.
