Increasingly demography or demographics has become recognized as a powerful tool in the arenas of social, business, and government problem-solving and decision-making. BGSU is unique because it provides students not only the technical expertise but also the theoretical tools they will need to make sense of and interpret demographic data and trends. BGSU offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees with demography specializations. In addition, undergraduate sociology majors can earn a concentration in population studies.
The Center also places a strong emphasis on training and mentoring of affiliates, particularly junior faculty members. The faculty research development awards are a formal mechanism that we use to structure mentoring. Faculty training funds help faculty integrate new methods, data, software, and analytic techniques into their research. The Center additionally provides a number of workshops throughout the year on grant-writing, statistical packages, advanced methods, and specific data sets.
