We offer the following degree programs:

ESL, Language & Culture
Liberal Arts – Modern Language

ESL Courses

The ESL Program provides five levels of instruction. Each level will have courses in Writing, Reading, Structure (grammar), and Phonology/Discussion. Each of these courses will help students develop the academic English skills needed to be successful in majors and programs at MCC. We offer day, afternoon, and evening classes at both the Edison and Perth Amboy campuses.

Paired Courses

Another opportunity for students to increase their learning is to take a paired course. In a paired course, you will have the same teacher and the same group of students for two classes. This allows you to build on skills you learned in one class to directly apply them to another class. Plus, you will have the added support of your classmates.

Modern Languages

Why major in a Foreign Language? Whether you are planning to pursue a career in business, social work, education, law enforcement, or health professions, competency in another language will help distinguish you from the competition. In addition, students who have studied foreign languages:

  • are in demand in business: studying a language exposes you to new cultures and world views, increasing your cultural sensitivity – an important skill for businesses with international connections.
  • are in demand in the government: much like businesses, the government is very interested in people with a background in language and and other cultures.
  • have better cognitive development: students who study foreign languages tend to do better in Math and English courses than students who have not studied a language.
  • have a variety of employment opportunities: Interpreters, Foreign Language Teachers, Health Care Professionals, Marketing Directors, Language Specialists, Lawyers, Border Patrol Agents, Foreign Affairs Specialists, and many other professions are open to students with foreign language backgrounds

If I major in Modern Languages, can I transfer to a four year college or university? Most or all of the credits earned at MCC toward an A.A. degree in Modern Languages will transfer to a four-year college or university depending on MCC’s particular transfer/articulation agreements with the institution in mind. You can continue your studies in foreign languages, or peruse other related fields such as linguistics or language acquisition.
