Maritime Studies (MAST)
We don't study the fish...we study the people who fish
Texas A&M University at Galveston offers students a unique opportunity to obtain a broad-based, interdisciplinary education in the only Bachelor of Arts program offered on campus. Maritime Studies students have interests that are not restricted to science, business or technology -- we focus on the human aspect of the coastal and maritime environment.
Maritime Studies (MAST) is a liberal arts educational program emphasizing the relationship between people and the sea. All MAST students take courses that ensure a broad understanding of the varied ways that humans use and impact coastal and maritime environments. Students not only study the present, but also the history of maritime cultural adaptations, and the literary expression of mankind’s experience with the sea. The program has a distinctive, international emphasis.
Maritime Studies: we study the relationship between people and the sea; especially culture, archaeology, history, public policy, arts and literature
