New PhD programme in Population Sciences at the University of Lisbon (ULisboa)

Interrelated perspectives on population issues


Four schools at the University of Lisbon (ULisboa) – Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas, Instituto de Ciências Sociais, Instituto de Geografia e Ordenamento do Território and Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão – have come together to offer a unique PhD programme on Population Sciences, starting in 2023/24.


A key feature of this programme is its interdisciplinary character, using mainly quantitative methods to study population issues. The programme recognizes that studying population and the causes and consequences of demographic events calls upon and contributes to diverse scientific fields.


The PhD in Population Sciences is a 4-year PhD programme designed for committed students and professionals from all backgrounds. Coming from a background in the Social Sciences, Health Sciences or Statistics, for example, you will receive solid training in demography and benefit from the international research environment. The programme, which is taught in English, will prepare you for top-level research in academic and non-academic environments.


The doctoral programme is based at ULisboa but connected to the world through partnerships with leading institutions.
