Certificate Programs

MDP students can obtain certificates demonstrating specific competencies and sectoral knowledge through established collaborations with other programs and units of Emory University.

Currently Emory MDP students are eligible for the following Emory-wide graduate-level certificates.  

Certificate in Human Rights: requires a foundational course paired with electives and a relevant research project or practicum. Past projects include organizing an Atlanta Human Rights Film Festival, mapping food access in refugee comunities, and combating human trafficking in the Atlanta area. 

Certificate in Religion and Health: offers interdisciplinary training centered on intersections of health and faith traditions and practices. The certificate requires a core course, the selection of electives, a practice component, and participation in specific university-wide lectures and special events.
