Associate of Applied Science Degree – Maritime Operations Technology
The Seafarers Harry Lundeberg School of Seamanship (SHLSS) at the Paul Hall Center has partnered with the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) to offer an Associate of Applied Science degree program in Maritime Operations Technology with a concentration in either Nautical Science (deck department students) or Marine Engineering (engine department students).
Students must complete a combination of required academic general education courses and vocational technical education courses in order to earn the degree. CSM will provide all of the general education courses and SHLSS will provide all of the technical courses required for the degree. All of the SHLSS technical courses have been evaluated and recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE)
Resident general education courses in English, Mathematics, and Physics taught by CSM faculty will be offered at SHLSS once each quarter for a three week period. The remaining general education courses can be completed on line.
Transfer credits from an accredited college or university will be evaluated on a case by case basis by CSM for application to the associate degree program. Courses recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) may qualify.
Upon successful completion of all requirements, students will be awarded the degree of Associate of Applied Science from CSM.
The College of Southern Maryland is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. All general education courses completed during this program are fully transferable to other public colleges and universities in the state of Maryland.
