The Master of Demography is the only degree of its kind offered in Australia.
The degree provides students with an opportunity to study population issues in a research-led environment, 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. Graduates will emerge with the skills to undertake demographic analysis and apply these to societal issues.
The degree is available in-person, with many courses available online or in-person. Two features of the program are the scenario-based learning approach and access to leading researchers. All courses will have these two key features as central components of the student experience.
Please be aware that any courses taken as part of the 24 units from completion of elective courses offered by ANU list will not count towards the advanced degree should you decide to transfer. This is because the advanced degree has no free electives, as they are in practice replaced by a 24 unit thesis.
Graduates from ANU have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide.
The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.
