Demography at Penn

Penn Demography trains independent researchers who are prepared to fill leading roles in social demography and population analysis at a variety of organizations and are well versed in the growth, structure, health and well-being of human populations. Graduates have a firm grasp of both the substance and methods of study in the core areas of demography and population sciences (mortality, fertility, migration, population aging, and demographic – economic interrelations) from both a domestic and international perspective.

Many students choose to do a joint Ph.D. with Sociology.

The University of Pennsylvania is a welcoming and inclusive place that values diversity of backgrounds, methodologies, theoretical perspectives, and research interests.

The annual application deadline is December 15.

UCI PhD Program

why uci economics?

When Nikki Tavasoli was thinking about where she wanted to pursue her graduate degree in economics, UC Irvine was at the top of her list.

“UCI has so many professors who are so esteemed and high ranking in their fields – I wanted to come here and absorb their knowledge and expertise,” she says. “I also chose to come to UCI because of the great funding they provide.”

Ranked #24 among all public economics programs in the country (U.S News & World Report), the UCI graduate program in economics offers admitted students 5 years of guaranteed funding.

Scholars in the department have a proven track record of earning competitive research funding from national agencies, including the National Science Foundation, Army Office of Research, and U.S. Department of Agriculture; from private foundations including the Russell Sage Foundation and Arnold Foundation; and from campus-level fellowships, such as the Public Impact, Fletcher Jones and Chancellor’s Club fellowships.

“UCI excels in economics because of the way it provides students with so many great research opportunities – both within the department and across campus through interdisciplinary work,” Nikki says.

For her, that means getting access to real consumer data for her research on health economics – specifically how nutritional characteristics and pricing schemes impact consumer dietary choices. And she also gets to work with faculty in medicine as well as economics to better understand her field.

“These are unique opportunities that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere,” she says.

And it’s true – the department has achieved national stature by attracting well-known senior scholars to its faculty and through the advancement of a host of young economists who have achieved national prominence for breaking new research ground in exciting fields. And graduate students have incredible opportunities to publish alongside these world-renowned faculty.

The economics department has 28 permanent faculty members with research and teaching interests that span a broad range of fields. In addition to strengths in micro theory, macroeconomics and econometrics (Bayesian and classical), the department has expertise in many applied fields, including:

  • Economic history
  • Industrial organization
  • International economics
  • Labor economics
  • Public choice
  • Public finance
  • Transportation economics
  • Urban economics

UCI economists pursue research with real-world policy impacts in areas including minimum wage debate, California policy toward enterprise zones, regulation of airline alliances, California high-speed rail demand forecasts, and public health. And students have an opportunity to earn a master’s degree while in pursuit of their Ph.D.

For graduate students, there’s also a healthy work-life balance when grad life gets stressful.

“Life as a UCI Ph.D. student is really fun. We go to the beach, hang out with friends, hit any one of the number of different restaurants around town…we find time to work and play here,” Nikki says. It’s easy to do when your school is less than 10 miles from Newport Beach on a 1,500 acre campus with endless running and hiking trails. And not to mention UCI is the #1 university committed to economic diversity and upward mobility (The New York Times College Access Index) and the #9 ranked public university in the U.S.(U.S. News & World Report).

Graduate students from UCI’s economics program have gone on to work in high-tech startups, research consultancy companies, government offices, and in professorial posts around the world. A quick sampling of recent placements:
