BS/BA University Studies
The University Studies Degree format was created to provide students the flexibility to combine areas of study at Texas A&M University or Texas A&M University at Galveston, within either or both campuses, that are of special interest. This flexibility may be attractive to students who have particular career paths or post-baccalaureate degree paths in mind. A University Studies Degree consists of a concentration of 21-24 hours and two minors of 15-18 hours each. Specific courses may be required for the completion of the hours in the concentrations and minors.
Concentration in Marine Environmental Law and Policy
The Galveston campus currently offers one area of concentration in Marine Environmental Law and Policy. The concentration requires 21 to 24 hours in coursework such as business law, admiralty law, environmental law, environmental ethics and politics of energy and the environment. Students can choose from a wide variety of combinations to position his or her self for graduate studies in environmental law, employment in environmental regulatory areas and/or industry interested in environmental protection especially in a near shore environment.
