The sample courses below were developed using the Quality Matters rubric as a framework for quality course development. They do not require you to purchase an expensive textbook and are part of MCC's Zero-Textbook-Cost-Degree with the highest standards and include multimedia, engaged faculty and perfectly selected content. They were developed in an accelerated 8-week format to allow you to complete the course quicker. If you are a part-time student, take one class every 8 weeks. If you are a full-time student, take two classes every 8 weeks, so you get a richer more in-depth experience in a shorter time frame.
