The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Development studies, as an academic discipline, tends to collect subject matter relevant to the developing world both from current discourse and foundational theory. Students might expect to engage with subjects as diverse as gender studies and geography.

UJ Development Studies is concerned with change. We are interested in what we can do to change the world, but also with understanding a world that is changing. Our ethos in research, teaching and activism is based upon a deep recognition of the tensions between development as an aspiration to create a better world, and as a normative and powerful (state or non-state) process of intervention into people’s lives. -

Demography is the scientific study of human population dynamics. It encompasses the study of the size, structure, and distribution of populations, and how populations change over time due to births, deaths, and migration including related events of marriages, divorces, and abortions. The relationships between economic, social, cultural, and biological environments and population development in terms of causes and effects (including forecasting) are the object of population studies in a broader sense. Demography compiles and analyzes data that are useful for various disciplines dealing with human populations such as economics, sociology, social medicine, anthropology, historiography, social geography, ecology, etc. Outcomes of demographic studies are important for public administration, policymaking, health service organization, educational system, insurance companies, etc. -
