Department Hours: Monday – Friday: 8:30am – 4:30pm. Appointments available until 6pm.
We offer the following degree programs:
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.
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.
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:
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.
