The Master of Science in Applied Demography will give students a graduate level introduction to the study of population and how the tools of a demographer are used to guide policy decisions. At the end of the degree program, students will be able to: work with large and complex data sources; analyze these data using appropriate statistical tests; graphically present data using statistical techniques and GIS; and write reports and papers based on empirically based questions using real data.
Graduates of the program will be employed as data analysts throughout the region in health, policy, education, and data science careers. The training in data analysis, computer software, and data management will be marketable in many settings. In addition, program graduates will have the option of continuing into the Ph.D. in Applied demography.
