Demographic Studies

Demographic Studies

Postgraduation in collaboration with ISCSP, ISEG, IGOT and the Associação Portuguesa de Demografia.


This Postgraduation aims to develop the skills and knowledge needed in positions, whether public or private, that require training in the area of Demographic Studies. This need is evident with regard to the planning of human resources and equipment, namely at the regional level, as well as in the elaboration and updating of territorial, educational, health, social security and leisure management instruments. In addition to contributing to the response to the great challenge of re-qualifying workers, this Post-Graduate course also aims to provide people still in training with skills that will be relevant both in continuing their studies and in their future professional careers.
