For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
The Office of Intercultural Engagement is committed to promoting education abroad experiences for cadets. Education abroad, including faculty-led experiential learning, semester exchanges, and international co-ops are of utmost importance in preparing cadets for an ever-changing global workplace in the 21st century as employers increasingly look for workers that value fresh ideas, international perspectives, and tolerance for other cultures. The benefits of studying abroad include intercultural awareness and a better understanding of culture and diversity from around the world.
