Getting a degree in Marine Transportation is an interesting subject to learn., like getting to know the stracture of ships construction , marine terms, ships organization and the weather prediction, and there are a lot more like the safe navigation.,Bringing the ships safe and seaworhty to its final destination or port of call.

Christine’s Answer

I am a 2001 graduate of SUNY Maritime College, one of the 7 US Maritime Academies (Maine, Mass., NY, Texas, California, Great Lakes, Kings Point). All of the schools are 4 years colleges where you graduate with a Bachelor's degree and a USCG license. They offer a limited selection of BSs and either a deck (Mate) or engineer's license. All of the academies are regimented, meaning they have a military structure including uniforms, marching, military protocol and inspections.

I obtained my BS in Marine Environmental Science, so unfortunately i cannot answer your questions about the Marine Transportation degrees.

Christine recommends the following next steps:
