Emory University ranks among the nation's most highly regarded research universities.
For more than a year, Emory has partnered with Coursera to offer free, not-for-credit, massive open online courses, or MOOCs. This type of online education has been popular — with some 241,000 students from around the world registering for Emory’s Coursera courses.
This fall Emory expands its Coursera presence once more by rolling out several new courses, including one that offers a multidisciplinary glimpse into the complex problem of violence, beginning September 3, taught by Emory professors Pamela Scully and Deb Houry, and a course on Childbirth: A Global Perspective, by Professor Lynn Sibley, set to start October 1.
