International Experience


Global awareness comprises one of the cornerstones of the mission of Cal Maritime. Studies in globalization and cross cultural competence are taught in a variety of courses. However, our cadets are also required to learn global awareness by experiencing other cultures through international travel and study abroad. For three of our shoreside degree programs (B.A. International Strategy and Security, B.S. International Business and Logistics and B.S. in Oceanography) this is offered as a three-credit “International Experience” summer course, led by our own faculty.
