ANU students commencing in 2019 are warmly invited to learn more about the study of demography at this presentation by Dr Bernie Baffour during Orientation Week.
Demography is about how populations change across space and time. Demographers study not only the size and composition of populations, but also what factors lead to a changing population. Many countries face pressing population problems, and demographers seek to understand the dynamics behind these issues, and help solve them.
Future cohorts of population analysts will not only improve the capacity for population policy research, but also provide better trained specialists for the health and social care professions, market research, government departments, and international agencies.Graduates from our study programs will take their skills and knowledge into businesses and organisations desperate for their inputs and energies in an ever more competitive workplace and changing world.
Undergraduate students may choose demography as part of a Minor in Demography or as essential elective coursework in a wide variety of disciplines, including environmental science, international relations, geography, public policy, economics, health, and indigenous studies. Students may also consider a Master of Demography as part of a Flexible Verticle Double Degree.
This presentation is offered as part of the CASS CAP Orientation and Induction Program and is open to students from across the University.
