The Emory MDP curriculum consists of a dynamic pedagogical process, which seeks to address students' specific interests as well as to capitalize on the many learning opportunities that are available at Emory University and its partner organizations. The actual sequence of courses may vary from year to year, depending on the availability of Emory faculty and visiting instructors.
