isten up young people!
If you’re nearing the end of high school, and you love spending
time on boats, or you love fishing, this news is for you. There’s
no reason you can’t make boats and boating part of your career.
Whether you’re looking for a four-year degree program, a jump-start into boatbuilding, or technical boat work, our comprehensive BoatU.S. database of colleges, trade schools, and maritime
academies will get you on your way to starting professional
careers in everything from the marine sciences – oceanography,
fisheries, marine biology, and so on – to the skilled technical side
of boatbuilding, design, repair, and restoration.
What if you have other academic interests, but still want to go to
a school where you can continue your favorite water-borne activity
while you pursue your degree? Well, we’ve covered that, too. Our
exclusive BoatU.S. database lists colleges with active fishing clubs,
sailing and waterskiing teams, and much more.
Head online to see our two articles: “The Boat Lovers’ Guide To
American Colleges,” and “The Boat Lovers’ Guide To Marine Trade
Schools,” both by BoatU.S. contributing editor Tim Murphy. These
databases tell you about each school, and include links for lots more
information. At BoatU.S., we’re dedicated to helping young people
stay in the sport we love, and bring their enthusiasm and potential
to the next generation of boating professionals.
