Overview

You can take classes about piracy, the literature and art of the sea, and conservation of marine environments, while gaining hands-on experience through professional internships or by obtaining a commercial shipping license.

We offer a bachelor degree in Maritime Studies at the SUNY Maritime College. Located half an hour from the heart of New York City and one of the nation's busiest ports, one of the strengths of the Maritime Studies program is that you can visit and actively explore the history, arts and culture you learn about. Faculty regularly take their classes on field trips to places like the South Street Seaport, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Broadway and Woodlawn Cemetery.
