Regiment of Midshipmen
Leadership, honor, integrity, discipline, comradery: if these ideals appeal to you, the Regiment of Midshipmen could be for you. Throughout your time at MMA, participation in the Regiment will allow you to grow as a person through an intense, structured program. From the first time you step on campus as MUG (midshipman under guidance), to leading a squad, platoon, company or entire Regiment, leadership is at the forefront of your experience.
Mandatory for certain majors (see below), the Regiment is not for everyone. However, for those willing to accept the mental and physical challenges that MMA and the Regiment present, a rewarding and fulfilling life can await you.
Majors requiring enrollment in the Maine Maritime Academy Regiment of Midshipmen include:
- Marine Engineering Operations
- Marine Engineering Technology
- Marine Systems Engineering: License track (5-year program)
- Marine Systems Engineering: Non-License track (4-year program: requires participation for first year only)
