Maine Maritime Academy is a public, co-educational college located in the coastal town of Castine, Maine, offering courses of study in engineering, management, science, and transportation. An institution devoted to nautical training in Maine was first proposed in the 1930s, but the Academy was founded in 1941 by an act of the 90th Maine Legislature.
The Academy offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. Many Academy students prepare for careers as officers in the U.S. Merchant Marine and the U.S. armed forces. The Online Master of Science program in International Logistics Management is available in a completely online format.
