The Master of Marine Resources Management (MMRM) degree is available as a thesis or non-thesis degree designed to serve the increasing need for professionals trained in managing coastal and ocean resources. The program is offered on the Texas A&M University at Galveston campus, drawing on TAMUG’s extensive faculty resources in the departments of Marine Sciences, Maritime Administration, Marine Transportation, the Center for Texas Beaches and Shores and the Center for Ports and Waterways. The 36 hour program consists of a core set of science, management and environmental law/policy courses. Students will be required to take additional hours of elective courses to complete their degree program, with the option to pursue a thesis if desired.

The Interdisciplinary Degree Program in Marine Biology was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in July 2008. The Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Marine Biology offers a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree, a master's thesis degree (M.S.), and a non-thesis master's degree. The Ph.D. and M.S. thesis degrees are focused heavily on research and interested students MUST seek out potential research advisors in the area of their interests before applying to the program. For the non-thesis Master's degree, applicants must also identify a potential faculty sponsor or liaison who has agreed to serve in a more limited, or advisory, capacity for the duration of their program. All applicants must identify their advisor or faculty sponsor in their letter of interest included with their application packet.
Marine Biology applicants should expect to work closely with their advisors regarding more specific application requirements. The interdisciplinary program includes 3 campuses of Texas A&M University System and 6 Departments. The host department of the program is the Department of Marine Biology on the Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) campus. The Department of Marine Science is also located on the TAMUG campus. The Departments of Oceanography, Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences, and Biology participate in the program on the College Station campus (TAMU). The Department of Life Sciences is located on the Texas A&M - Corpus Christi campus (TAMUCC).
