Meta-Majors at MCC

What are Meta-majors?

Do you have subjects you’re interested in but don’t know how those might fit into your educational plans at MCC? Choosing a Meta-major may be a good option! Meta-majors are sets of courses designed around six broad subject areas and let you explore your interests while earning credits in courses required for any degree you choose. You won’t stay in a Meta-major—as soon as you decide on the course of study that’s right for you and your goals, you can move to that degree program with some of your required courses already completed.

Explore MCC’s Meta-majors below, and speak with an advisor about the best plan for you!
