Although Stanford University does not have a degree program in population studies, it does have scholars of international reputation in specialties such as demographic history, demographic methods, economic demography, epidemiology, population biology, population genetics, and the sociology and anthropology of populations.

The Morrison Institute for Population and Resource Studies is an interdisciplinary group serving three major functions: (1) encouraging graduate work in population and resource studies through fellowship grants and supervision, (2) instituting courses and seminars in population and resource studies, and (3) bringing visiting faculty to Stanford to strengthen existing course offerings. The institute also organizes an interdisciplinary Colloquium on Population Studies to introduce upper-division undergraduates and graduate students to issues in population-related specialties.
