Is MVC the industry standard for web development today?

The teacher's notes link to a Wikipedia page that says MVC goes back to the 70's. While changes have been made and non-MVC exists, does anything come even close to comparing with them in popularity?

My real question is, should I master MVC as the way to develop software today or are there alternatives I need to be aware of and learn as well?

MVC is one of the most frequently used web development framework to create scalable and extensible projects. It is considered a design pattern which are frequently executed and documented. MVC happens to be the most commonly used because of it has proven itself one of the most worthy design patterns documented. I would consider MVC to be one of the most frequently used and likely something to continue looking into.
