The DEDP MicroMasters courses may be taken in any order, but in general, the DEDP team recommends that learners new to the field begin with the required core courses 14.100x Microeconomics and 14.310x Data Analysis for Social Scientists, as they will form a helpful foundation for the other DEDP courses.
There is no required order, though, and depending on your background, schedule, and goals, you may take the courses in whatever order or combinations work for you.
The DEDP program team generally assesses the following relative difficulties for each DEDP course. Learners new to the field are generally recommended to take introductory or intermediate courses before advanced courses—but the choice is up to each learner.
When planning which DEDP courses to take, please keep in mind that all learners must complete at least one Advanced Elective course, and only one Introductory Elective course may count towards the Program Credential.
