Associate Degree for Mariners

April 3, 2012 Morgan City, Louisiana) For centuries seafarers have put to sea for many reasons:  for a better life, for adventure, and even for the defense of their country. The offshore environment is little known to today’s lay person, but the hard work, dangers, and family separations are instilled in the minds of the sailors who venture to work offshore everyday.  Work schedules that have a mariner offshore away from home 6 to 7 months out of a year deprive today’s offshore worker from many rewards, and goals a person working on land is able to obtain without much difficulty.  One of those rewards, almost unobtainable, is a college degree—until now.

S.C.L.T.C. Young Memorial has developed an Associate Degree in Marine Transportation that was recently approved by the Louisiana Board of Regents. This unique degree contains courses needed for a mariner to move along their career path from Able Seaman to Master. The Marine Transportation Degree is the first degree that will also give working mariners credit for their time at sea.

S.C.L.T.C. Young Memorial recognized and created this degree so that mariners working on their Merchant Seaman credentials could also be working on a college degree. The Marine Transportation Degree allows a mariner to exit with a Certificate of Technical Studies, a Technical Diploma, or an Associate of Applied Science in Marine Transportation. These credentials will allow the mariner a chance to obtain the rewards not usually offered to an offshore worker.
