Co-Op and Commercial Cruise Program

 

Each year California State University, Maritime Academy seeks support from employers in the continued educational development of our students. The application of in class learning to real world settings is a cornerstone in the development of a Cal Maritime graduate. Career  Services administratively assists students with finding a Co-Op or a Cadet Shipping Billet onboard a sailing merchant marine vessel.
