Degree Program


Building on its historical strengths in signature fields such as demographic methods, fertility, health and mortality, the Office of Population Research (OPR) at Princeton University has 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. The Program in Population Studies (POP) offers a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in demography that is designed for students who wish to specialize in the core substantive topics and technical methods.
