The Center for Demography and Population Health at Florida State University offers a one-year program of study leading to the Masterof Science degree in Demography.


The Center at Florida State University offers a master’s degree in Demography and, in association with the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, a joint graduate pathway for both a planning and a demography master’s degree.

The home departments include Sociology, Economics, Geography, Urban and Regional Planning, History, and Statistics, and the College of Medicine.
