The course of study also provides students with a balance of coursework between completing Education classes, General Education requirements, and pursuing courses within the students' selected academic major.

MCC students also have the opportunity to apply for membership into Pi Lambda Theta, the International Honor Society and Professional Association in Education. MCC is the first community college in the nation invited to join this honor society.
