SOCY 20 Population and Society

The world’s population will more than double from 7 to 16 billion people by 2100.  What are the implications of this for public policy, population health and aging, fertility and reproduction, immigration, and social inequality?  This course answers these questions and more.  It will introduce students to the study of social demography and population studies, with a focus on understanding how population processes influence and shape social problems. Students will learn how to use the basic demographic tools used to study population processes, as well as the important debates surrounding the causes and implications of such changes.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
