Demography is the scientific study of human population dynamics. It encompasses the study of the size, structure, and distribution of populations, and how populations change over time due to births, deaths, and migration including related events of marriages, divorces, and abortions. The relationships between economic, social, cultural, and biological environments and population development in terms of causes and effects (including forecasting) are the object of population studies in a broader sense. Demography compiles and analyzes data that are useful for various disciplines dealing with human populations such as economics, sociology, social medicine, anthropology, historiography, social geography, ecology, etc. Outcomes of demographic studies are important for public administration, policymaking, health service organization, educational system, insurance companies, etc. -

UJ Development Studies is concerned with change. We are interested in what we can do to change the world, but also with understanding a world that is changing. Our ethos in research, teaching and activism is based upon a deep recognition of the tensions between development as an aspiration to create a better world, and as a normative and powerful (state or non-state) process of intervention into people’s lives. -

Given its characteristics, the Ph.D. program in Regional Development Sciences is aimed at graduates of master's degrees related to some discipline of economic, administrative, social, and humanities sciences. And it is that the region is not exclusive to a scientific discipline, but to all those that affect the social space. That is why we speak of regional development sciences, which are intended to study and interpret some aspect of the development of society, but this must be done from an integral vision, and not applicative as it has been until now. Being then, the fundamental objective of this Doctorate Program, the preparation of specialized professionals whose mission will be to analyze regional development as an integrating situation of the various sciences that influence it. Therefore, the concept itself, of Regional Development Sciences, is dedicated to investigating the social space from a complementary perspective among the various scientific visions that affect the development of human beings in their collective coexistence. -
