Reading Department Sign

Welcome to MCC's Reading Department.

We offer a variety of courses designed to meet university transfer requirements and appeal to the wide interests of our students. While developmental reading and College Critical Reading comprise the majority of the courses we offer, we also offer classes in other areas such as English as a Second Language and College Study Skills.

Our Vision

Empower students to develop the disciplinary literacy and critical thinking skills needed to obtain personal, academic, and professional goals, and support 21st-century learners in navigating their contribution to the local and global communities.

Whether you're enrolled in a traditional classroom section or an online or hybrid class, MCC's diverse Reading faculty are committed to providing excellent instruction to help students improve their vocabulary, reading comprehension, study skills, and critical reading.

The Reading Department curriculum is designed to develop the necessary reading skills to help students succeed at Mesa Community College. Some of the reading courses may require tutoring or special study hours in the Academic Skills Center or the Learning Enhancement Center (LEC) in addition to class coursework.
