Seeking to better understand the causes and consequences of population processes, CU Boulder offers an interdepartmental Graduate Certificate Program in Population Studies.
The certificate is highly interdisciplinary and engages award-winning faculty from a number of social science departments with expertise on a broad range of population-focused topics. Offering an interdisciplinary home for many of these scholars, the Population Program in the Institute of Behavioral Science (IBS) offers research specialties in population health, health inequalities, reproductive health, biodemography, population and the environment and migration and population distribution. The Program, and related CU Population Center, sponsor regular research presentations and students receive peer and faculty support through a regular “Population & Health” workshop designed for informal research feedback.
Past certificate students have moved in to a variety of professional, academic and research roles in public and private organizations concerned with population issues and problems at the international, national, state, and local scales.
