Global Studies Opportunities
MCC participates in UNC's Scholar of Global Distinction Program. As part of this partnership, community colleges and their faculty commit to develop and offer globally intensive courses and activities through which students can earn a global distinction credential. UNC World View mobilizes the international resources of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to help community colleges create truly global campuses. It is a national model for university - community college collaboration in global learning.
Another opportunity for MCC students can be found in the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program. This is a summer study abroad opportunity for American college and university students to learn languages essential to America’s engagement with the world. Students spend eight to ten weeks abroad over the summer studying one of 15 critical languages. The CLS Program, a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is part of a U.S. government initiative to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering foreign languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity. CLS plays an important role in preparing American students for the 21st century’s globalized workforce and increasing national competitiveness. This program includes full scholarship which covers all travel, tuition, housing, and a living stipend and non-competitive eligibility for U.S. government jobs for up to three years after program completion.
Literary and Creative Arts Club
The Literary and Creative Arts Club was created to provide a sense of community and belonging to students who prefer to express themselves through writing, art, and/or music.

Each year, the Literary and Creative Arts Club members participate in volunteer activities, Constitution Day, and creative contests.
