About

In the master programme Population Studies at University of Groningen students learn the theories, methods and skills required to become a versatile demographer.

Overview

Essential to understanding population dynamics is the study of people’s demographic behaviour, such as birth, health, migration, and death. 

The master programme focuses on these demographic events, on how decision-making regarding these life events is influenced by the economic, societal, cultural, and geographical context, and on how these demographic events have an impact on population-level trends.

Job prospects

  • The Master Population Studies from University of Groningen trains you to become a versatile demographer. As a demographer you are competent in describing and analyzing both the population dynamics of different countries or regions and the demographic behaviour of individuals or population groups. Also you are an expert in predicting the likely demographic developments for the future.
  • Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the master programme, you are capable of reflecting on how the context in which we live affects individual demographic behaviour and leads to different population dynamics, which again has societal consequences.
