About

This Economic Growth, Population and Development programme at Lund University aims to explore the general history of production and distribution, population and living standards, institutions and social organisation. The programme offers knowledge to carry out investigations and analyses concerning changes of social and economic conditions under different circumstances.

Overview

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.

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.

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.

Career prospects

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.

Many graduates from the Economic History track choose to work at national or international organisations in positions requiring analytical skills. Recent graduates work at the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE), the German parliament, the UN, HSBC, Hong Kong Banking Services, and Nordea.

The programme also provides excellent prep­aration for PhD studies, regardless of your chosen track.
