TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY AT GALVESTON, the marine and maritime branch campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, educates more than 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students in programs that include majors in science, business, engineering, liberal arts, and marine transportation.
The Galveston campus is on Pelican Island, surrounded by the environments and industries it serves. The urban coastal environment offers access to natural ecosystems alongside one of the largest international hubs of the maritime industry.
Rigorous classroom experiences combined with experiential learning and international internships provide students practical experience as they pursue their fields of passion. All degree programs expose students to the social implications of the broad impacts humans and the environment have on our coasts and oceans.
Texas A&M at Galveston is also home to the Texas A&M Maritime Academy, which trains more than four hundred cadets annually for maritime service and employment around the world. Cadets learn how to operate and maintain oceangoing vessels, and its graduates become licensed ship officers while earning bachelor’s degrees. The academy also commissions officers in the U.S. Merchant Marine, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Coast Guard.
