The Barcelona Four Seasons School of Demography (Bcn4Seasons School) programme consists of short courses offering the opportunity to acquire essential knowledge of sociodemographic topics and associated techniques that are applicable to social sciences in general. This innovative educational programme is led by the Centre d’Estudis Demogràfics (CED – Centre for Demographic Studies), an internationally renowned sociodemographic research centre addressing population-related issues and affiliated with leading international networks and associations. The outstanding quality of its research work has been acknowledged both nationally and internationally. 

The CED brings together a research team that is well known for its contributions to the advancement of social sciences through highly relevant publications and projects funded by competitive calls at the European and national levels. Students will receive up-to-date, relevant training that will enhance their professional development under the guidance of lecturers who, through their research, significantly contribute to their field of study. 

The Bcn4Seasons School  also benefits from 40 years of experience of the CED in managing excellent postgraduate programmes.
