Welcome to the Marine Transportation Department. Our department includes the largest single segment of the student body on the Cal Maritime campus, approximately 40% of all enrolled students. This is a degree 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 100% upon graduation even in the severe economic downturn we are currently experiencing.
Because of its well-known quality and popularity among prospective students, and the limited number of candidate slots, the California State University has declared the MT Degree an impacted program. This means that additional acceptance criteria may be required of the applicant over and above what is normally expected of most CSU students.
