A maritime archaeologist does historical research related to maritime issues. This can involve book-related research as well as scuba diving to inspect underwater sites including ship wrecks.
A master’s degree in history, archaeology, or a related field is required to obtain this position. A doctorate may make a person more competitive during the job search. A master's degree typically takes about two-three years to earn after earning a four-year bachelor's degree. Earning a doctorate may require an additional two-three years of college work.
There will likely be a lot of competition for these positions because of the small number of related job opportunities.
