An overview of Academic Focus Areas

MCC has organized its degree and certificate offerings into seven Academic Focus Areas. These areas are meant to help you choose, particularly if entering college uncertain on options or how programs align with your skills or career interests. The idea is to simplify choice and get you started on the right path for you.
