The researchers embarked on the awareness of maritime students regarding the DEAR program because this study could be a help to distinguish if maritime students are aware with the newly implemented program and measure their level of agreement towards the set guidelines of the DEAR. Results showed that the respondents of the study are aware that the DEAR program aims to improve their communication skills. According to them, DEAR program can also help the students to practice continuous learning through reading. DEAR program seeks help in shaping student’s discipline. The respondents are also aware that the DEAR program aims to support Outcomes-based Education; it is an institutional program that encourages students to use their free hours in the library and maximizes the library resources which also provides maritime students to read more books in relation to their subject matter.
