Monterey Peninsula College, commonly called "MPC", is a public community college located in Monterey, California. Established in 1947, it is a part of the California Community Colleges system.

In 2009, MPC established a Great Books program, one of only two such programs available in the California Community Colleges system. The certificate can be completed through online study. In 2013, the MPC entered into an articulation agreement with Chicago's Shimer College, allowing students who have completed the MPC Great Books certificate to continue their studies at Shimer.


Monterey Peninsula College competes in the Coast Conference as a Junior College. Its athletic teams are known as the "Lobos", which is derived from lobo (Spanish: wolf).
