In the Maritime Academy, students will experience a curriculum that integrates maritime industries and skills, history, and science. Maritime-focused electives and internship opportunities are available to students in their junior and senior years. This academy focuses on interdisciplinary study, hands-on learning, practical experience, and the opportunity to perform research. Students will take three occupational education courses that will present them with many hands-on experiences to illustrate connections between social studies and science in the real world of the maritime industries and sciences.
