When applying to this Economic Growth, Population and Development programme at Lund University, you select one of three tracks: Economic History Track, Economic Demography Track or the Economic Development Track.
Knowledge of the past is essential for understanding today’s world and shaping the future. In the Economic History track you will develop advanced insights into the long-term development of societies. By combining analytical tools from economics and the social sciences with a contextual understanding of conditions in the past, you will become able to use the accumulated human experience to solve current-day problems. Central themes studied are growth, stagnation, crises and distribution of resources.
Changes in population have an impact on everything from taxes, school systems, labour markets and health care to marketing and sales of products and services. The Economic Demography track will provide you with theory, methods and skills necessary to explain a number of social and economic phenomena. Key topics include mortality and the demographic transition, the labour market, migration patterns and health issues. The programme enables you to better understand and tackle global issues tied to employment, welfare and public health.
Graduates of this programme will be equipped with the methods and analytical skills to pursue a broad range of careers in both public and private sector, within government agencies, national bureaus and administrations, think tanks and research organisations, analyst firms and multinational companies.
Given the wide scope of the programme and its interdisciplinary nature, graduates can expect employment opportunities within a multitude of areas, depending on the selected track.
