The 30-credit master of professional studies in applied demography has been designed to teach the analytical skills that professionals in business, government and nonprofits need to use demographic data and statistics. It is being offered online through Penn State World Campus, and students will be mentored by the highly ranked demography faculty from College of the Liberal Arts at Penn State. 

“Demographers provide information that allows policymakers and business leaders to make informed decisions with as much information as possible,” said Alexis R. Santos, the lead faculty member of the new program. “We're devoting the resources available to create a cutting-edge, emerging program for online delivery.”
