Massachusetts Maritime Academy

Address: 101 Academy Drive, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, United States

Located on Cape Cod, the Massachusetts Maritime Academy has prepared men and women for careers at sea and on land for more than 100 years. Situated on the historic Cape Cod Canal, it is the second oldest and first co-educational maritime academy in the nation. Cadets can travel to exotic ports of call on the Academy’s training vessel, the USTS Kennedy, while acquiring their Bachelor of Science degree in a wide number of professions. Upon completion of their course of study, graduates can apply for a commission in the U.S. Navy or earn a Merchant Marine Officer’s license. The Maritime Academy awards several Masters Degrees and offers a wide variety of continuing education programs. The institution operates a U.S. Coast Guard approved scale model ship handling facility, the only one of its kind in the country.

The Massachusetts Maritime Academy has an enrollment of 1,100 undergraduate students. Tuition is based upon the student’s home of record. In-state residents pay $16,767. Regional students pay tuition of $17,800, and the remainder of the corps of cadets pay $30,900. There are additional fees depending upon the cadet’s field of study and whether the training vessel transits the Panama Canal during the Sea Term.
