The European Master's degree in Demography is an introduction to research and the study of the population. The teaching staff are from one of the main research centres for demography - the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD).

This school moves every two years to one of the main institutes of European demography. It was first at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock (Germany) in 2005-07, then at the Institut National d'Etudes Démographiques de Paris (France) from 2007-09, and at the Centre for Economic Demography at Lund University (Sweden) from 2009-11. In 2011-2013 the programme will be based at the Department of Geography and the School will be at the Centre d'Estudis Demogràfics of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

The teaching staff are mainly from these 4 institutions as well as research centres and universities in Austria, Canada, France, Great Britain and the Netherlands. The EDSD offers a unique experience and opportunity to young Europeans to acquire solid knowledge of demography and apply that knowledge professionally.
