Population and Society
Academic Credit

Not only is the overall world population growing, the composition of the earth's population is constantly changing. These changes exert powerful influences on society, impacting the well-being of people in many ways. For example, population growth and population change influence economic development, the natural environment, health care, and other important social phenomenon. This creates a need for studying and understanding population dynamics. This course is devoted to the study of demographic processes, their causes, and their consequences. We will review population trends across time and across cultures, learn how to empirically measure changes in the population, and discuss how these trends impact society, policy, and culture. IQ, IB
