Fall 2020 Class Updates

(updated 5-26-20)

MJC Faculty and Staff are working on solutions that will allow us to offer most of the courses normally scheduled for the Fall term.  Many of the courses will be offered online or by using remote teaching methods.  Some classes may require on campus "face to face" meetings.

As solutions for safe campus visits are developed, we will post updates (via the links below) for Arts, Humanities and Communication courses.

Please access the links below for information about Fall 2020 courses and modifications necessary for safe learning.
