Welcome to the Department of Demography at The University of Texas at San Antonio!

The Department of Demography provides training intended to increase the understanding of the size, distribution, composition and growth of human populations. Our program focuses on developing an understanding of the conceptual basis of population structure, processes, analytical methods, and related policy issues. We offer a Ph.D. in Applied Demography and the focus of the Ph.D. program is on the application of demographic analysis analyses to policy issues encountered in the public and private sectors.

The Department, through the College of Public Policy, provides financial support as many as 8 full time students. The Departmental Office and most faculty offices are located in Suite 2.270 in the  Monterey Building, on the UTSA Downtown Campus.

The Department of Demography was established and the Ph.D. in Applied Demography was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in January of 2006. The first class of students enrolled in the Fall Semester 2006.
