Why MLC?

Our students attend small classes and meet with their instructors—many of whom are native speakers—regularly. With our interdisciplinary curriculum, we prepare students for careers that stress critical thinking and cross-cultural communication. Because our courses are frequently cross-listed with other departments, many MLC students can complete double or even triple majors.
