I am currently in the navy and have been for almost 7 years. My rate is a Quartermaster and i have 2 years as a deck seamen. 2 years experience in open ocean navigation and 3 years land and river navigation, Along with experience in meteorology and oceanography.
I am planning on getting out in a year and a half. There are 2 avenues i see that i could take.
1st is Suny maritime where i can get a B.A. in environmental science (oceanography and meteorology)
2nd is a maritime training institute.
i loved navigating and doing ship board operations in the navy but i am a little fed up with not being able to make my own choices.
What are the advantages of getting a degree from a maritime vice going to a maritime trainging institute?
