What will I learn?

The Master of Demography (Advanced) is the only degree of its kind offered in Australia.

The degree provides students with an opportunity to research population issues in Australia’s leading demography program. Students will experience research-led coursework, with a focus on applying learning to real-world scenarios. The degree will equip students with cutting-edge skills in demographic techniques, research and writing, culminating with a research thesis.

Both in-person and online courses will have these two key features as central components of the student experience.
