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 which will be launched in Fall 2019. Any time you see the term Z Course or Zero-Textbook-Cost Degree, you can be assured that the courses were developed with the highest standards and include multimedia, engaged faculty and perfectly selected content.
Not only can you count on these courses to be quality, but you never have to step foot on campus because they are all taught 100% online and in Canvas, MCC's Learning Management System (LMS). We also provide online tutoring and office hours in these courses. You are more than welcome to come to campus to meet with professors or use our in-person services, but rest assured that you will be well supported online.
As an online student, we know you care about flexibility in your schedule. Because of this, most of these courses are available in 8-week accelerated formats. If you are a part-time student, take one class each 8 weeks so you get a richer more in-depth experience in a shorter time frame. If you are a full-time student, take two classes each 8 weeks.
*Please note: These courses are only previews, you can interact with some of the content, but will not receive any feedback from the course instructors – they are just samples. We are currently adding more courses to this page, so check back for more previews!
