Massachusetts Maritime Academy: The Campus as a Living Classroom
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.
Located on Cape Cod, at the mouth of the scenic Cape Cod Canal, Massachusetts Maritime Academy is the ideal college to pursue your love for the ocean, your concern for the environment, your interest in Math and Sciences, and your thirst for adventure.
The Academy believes in learning through application and requires students to spend a portion of their academic program at sea or in internships or cooperatives. Resident life is regimented, instilling in cadets honor, responsibility, discipline and leadership.
The Academy signed the ACUPCC in September 2007 and has committed to work toward carbon neutrality. As the Academy approaches its 125th birthday, the goals are attainable through the use of wind, solar, geothermal and combined heat and power technology, sustainable practices in recycling, cleaning, landscape management, energy and water conservation and, above all, teaching the next generation of sustainability leaders.
