Students in this course explore domestic and international distributions of population growth, fertility, mortality, and migration. Historical evidence dating from the industrial revolution onward exposes dynamic local, regional, and global changes in many demographic characteristics of societies. On topics including health inequalities, urbanization, natural resource use, migration politics, and environmental sustainability, among others, students encounter interdisciplinary perspectives and conduct novel original research about social challenges facing communities around the world. Furthermore, students use individual- and population-level theories of human behavior to consider solutions to urgent issues facing society.
