On September 4, 2011, California State University Maritime Academy launched its first graduate degree program, a Master of Science in Transportation and Engineering Management. The inaugural class graduated in the spring of 2013. Since then, 11 cohorts have graduated, with our latest class of graduates awarded their degrees in spring 2023.
Cohorts 12 and 13 are currently in progress, and applications for fall 2024's Cohort 14 are now being accepted. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Cal Maritime's Master of Science in Transportation and Engineering Management program provides advanced instruction in business and management fundamentals, coupled with specialized preparation for career advancement in the participant's chosen specialization — Transportation, Engineering Management, or Humanitarian Disaster Management.
The 10-course degree program (30 credit hours) is offered completely online with accepted students proceeding through the learning process as a cohort. Current students report that the support offered by the cohort model along with 24/7 online access are big benefits for those juggling careers and families with graduate coursework.
All graduate students take five core courses in basic management, then each graduate student takes four courses focusing on their chosen degree track of Transportation, Engineering Management, or Humanitarian Disaster Management. Finally, graduate students complete a Capstone course designed to help them demonstrate their learning through an extensive project in their work setting.
