Cooperative Education

Requirement Shore-Side Majors

An innovative approach to education that integrates professional industry experience into the academic curriculum.

Co-ops give MSSEP, EM, IMB, ESE, and FE students an opportunity to work within their profession as part of their academic program, giving them real-world experience while helping to finance their education. Co-op positions are also available locally and globally and for industry and research positions.

About 30% of Mass Maritime Academy undergraduates are offered a full-time job from their co-op or commercial shipping employer upon graduation.
