Training

Training in the Population Sciences at UC Berkeley takes place in many forms and settings, for students at different levels.

The Demography Department offers training for advanced degrees in demography.  

For undergraduates, Cal-ADAR, sponsored by the Berkeley Population Center, is a program funded by the National Institutes on Aging (R25AG047948) designed to give underrepresented students a chance to experience research while studying demography of aging.  Cal-ADAR offers participants many ways to engage in demography of aging research through courses, paid internships, mentoring, and much more.   

For advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career researchers, Workshops in Formal Demography, sponsored by the Berkeley Population Center, and funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (R25HD083136), is an annual weeklong summer workshop for training in formal demographic methods and applications.  The Workshop consists of three days of training followed by a two-day conference, with presentations by leading demographers.  Topics change each year.
