The Department of Culture and Communication delivers Cal Maritime programs in Arts, Literature and Culture, Writing, and Languages. Our courses enrich our students by building literary and cultural fluency, critical thinking and communication skills.  Our faculty and students approach these activities with academic rigor, ethical commitment, and the global perspective that characterizes the maritime university.

Members of the faculty are dedicated to teaching and scholarly research in diverse fields such as environmental studies, maritime literature, oceanic studies, literary theory, rhetoric and composition, technical writing, film and new media. Our faculty are active in professional organizations and societies, and many are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their disciplines. Even as student-centered, teaching-focused professionals, C&C faculty actively publish and present their work throughout the world. Read about some recent faculty achievements here!

The Department of Culture and Communication is at the heart of social and cultural life on the Cal Maritime campus. With the library, we sponsor the annual spring Maritime Film Festival, and we support the Joseph P. Rizza Lecture as well as clubs, lectures, and discussions throughout the year.

Each year we recognize excellence in student writing with two awards, given to outstanding writers in C&C courses.  Culture and Communication faculty regularly lead students in the International Experience program, learning in such important areas as France, Belgium, China, Japan, Taiwan and Viet Nam.
