Texas A&M Maritime Academy
The Texas A&M Maritime Academy is an integral part of Texas A&M University at Galveston. The Corps of Midshipmen consists of four different groups of students:
All of these groups, although different in function, are in the Corps of Midshipmen. Midshipmen wear uniforms to school, jointly participate in training and other Corps activities.
Midshipmen seeking the Texas A&M Maritime Academy U.S. Merchant Marine (LO) licensing may choose to major in Marine Transportation, Marine Engineering Technology, Marine Biology License Option, Marine Sciences License Option, and the Masters of Maritime Administration and Logistics. Navy ROTC Midshipmen may choose any major offered at Texas A&M University at Galveston.
For those students who already have a Bachelor's degree, we also offer a "MBA" in Maritime Business under the Masters of Administration and Logistics degree program, with the License Option. For more information see the next section, on How to apply to the Academy.
Midshipmen receive training aboard the Training ship (GENERAL RUDDER), as well as bridge simulation facility, radar training facility, shore side maritime safety training facilities. Buildings include a student center, seven residence halls, library, classroom buildings, a physical education facility, and other recreational facilities.
