Princeton University Demography & Social Policy Ph.D. (Joint Degree Program)

The Office of Population Research (OPR), founded in 1936, is the demographic research and graduate training center at Princeton University. The field encompasses a wide range of specializations that span substantive and methodological subjects in the social, mathematical, and biological sciences. Building on its historical strengths in signature fields such as demographic methods, fertility, health and mortality, OPR researchers have embraced fields that are currently prominent in population studies, such as international migration and development, children, youth and families, as well as various aspects of social and economic inequality. In addition, OPR researchers are involved in new fields of inquiry such as epigenetics, biodemography, social epidemiology, and web-based experimentation.

Students may obtain a joint degree in Demography and Social Policy via a collaborative training program through the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The Joint Degree Program (JDP) in Social Policy includes the Departments of Politics, Psychology, and Sociology in addition to PIPS. Students interested in the joint degree in Demography and Social Policy have the option of applying to the joint degree program at the time of their initial application to the Graduate School or transferring into the program after their first or second year of graduate study with the permission of the director of graduate studies for the Program in Population Studies.

Students in the Joint Degree Program must first be admitted by their home (disciplinary) department as well as the multidisciplinary social policy faculty. Only those who are admitted by both committees will be eligible to participate in the program, insuring complete integration of the students into their disciplinary departments as well as the social policy community. The application process, outlined below, differs based on the students’ home departments. - See more at: http://wws.princeton.edu/graduate-academics/programs/joint-degree-progra...
