Our department offers a Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation, the largest degree program on the Cal Maritime campus. This is a program that can lead to an exciting and rewarding career in the U.S. merchant marine and related industries. Our job placement has been very close to 100% upon graduation even in the severe economic downturn of recent years.

This means that additional acceptance criteria may be required of the applicant over and above what is normally expected of most CSU students.
