Training

Training

CSDE provides UW graduate students with advanced, interdisciplinary training in population science. CSDE is not a degree granting unit, but does offer a formal Demographic Methods Graduate Certificate open to any graduate student at UW. A fellowship program is available for those enrolled in the certificate program.
