Course Overview

Fall 2017 | Spring 2018 | Academic Calendar | Practicum | Course Descriptions

CJP seeks to be sensitive to students’ religious beliefs. If you have a conflict due to a religious commitment, please let CJP administration know immediately and we will try to accommodate your schedule.

The following lists only include CJP courses; if you are interested in electives in other graduate programs at Eastern Mennonite University, please contact CJP’s academic program coordinator or check out the EMU School of Graduate & Professional Studies.

Some courses require prerequisites or simultaneous enrollment in other courses. Some courses require permission of instructor for enrollment of students not in the CJP MA degree or Graduate Certificate programs. Please read the course descriptions carefully.

Fall courses start August 29 and end December 15.
