DDM Demography and Social Inequality

Arbeidsmarkt

The objective of the programme is to train young professionals and social scientists in the theories, analytical and methodological tools from both sociology and demography to conduct high quality research on how individuals' main life events (e.g. childbirth, education, marriage, occupation, divorce, death) both influence and are influenced by the social and geographical context in which they live.

The programme emphasizes the study of both advanced and developing societies from an unique interdisciplinary and dynamic perspective. After graduation you can find work in business, the government, or non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Demographers are trained to work with and interpret large data files. You can use these skills to make policy or develop programmes. You can also pursue an academic career and apply for a PhD position.

During the programme at the University of Groningen we offer support for your career preparation. The Career Services are provided by the Careers Company and the UG Career Services.
