Maritime Studies Association

The Maritime Studies Association (MSA) is the official student-run group for the Maritime Studies Program. It provides opportunities for students to expand their education through events like presentations by professionals in the field of maritime archaeology, field trips to historical vessels, and advanced dive training through ECU’s Office of Diving and Water Safety. The group also supports students to improve organizational abilities, leadership, and professional skills through seminars, workshops and presentations by professional archaeologists along with other organizations on the ECU campus.

If interested in MSA, feel free to send a message to the faculty advisor, Dr. Jason Raupp.
