Registration is now open for fall-semester classes at Middlesex Community College. Middlesex offers more than 75 degree and certificate programs, including many transfer options. Fall-semester classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 4, on the Bedford and Lowell campuses, and online.

This year, MCC is offering two new programs of study. These include an associate degree in Medical Laboratory Technician and a Chinese Studies Option within the Global Studies Program.

As a member of the health care team, medical laboratory technicians play a critical role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Students enrolled in MCC’s Medical Laboratory Technician Program will gain experience in all areas of the laboratory, including chemistry, hematology, immunology, serology, and more. Students will get hands-on training through laboratory sessions and working in local clinics. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the board certification exam with the American Society of Clinical Pathology.

MCC’s new Chinese Studies Option is a 27-credit option within the Liberal Arts and Sciences, Global Studies Concentration. This unique program offers students a chance to learn about China’s 4,000-year-old culture, including the economy, current global issues, cultural diversity and intercultural teamwork. The curriculum includes courses in Chinese literature, contemporary China, and two semesters of Chinese language. This program qualifies for MassTransfer, the program that guarantees credit transfer to Massachusetts state colleges and universities, including UMass.
