Module overview

The BSc dissertation project is designed to allow students to do an in-depth study of an area in demography that they are particularly interested in, and to enable them to demonstrate skills

and knowledge acquired throughout their undergraduate career. Projects can take several forms, including a quantitative exploration or analysis of demographic data; a case study of a society or

population; an application of a particular demographic technique; or the analysis of a particular demographic phenomenon in a given country or region.

In the course of the BSc project and preparing the dissertation, the students are expected to develop the following cognitive skills: independent thought, devising appropriate methods of analysis, data

collection and interpretation, clarity of argument, understanding of the chosen topic area, and presentation of technical information.
