Graduate Studies

Welcome to Texas A&M University Galveston Campus, a branch campus of Texas A&M University, offering marine and maritime studies degrees in Engineering, Liberal Arts, Biological and Physical Sciences, and Business and Transportation. With total campus enrollment of almost 2,100 students, of which nearly 200 are graduate students, Texas A&M University at Galveston‘s 130-acre Mitchell Campus is teeming with activity.

Texas A&M University Galveston Campus was designated a special purpose institution in 1971 in part to fulfill the Sea Grant mission of Texas A&M University, a tier one research institution. Texas A&M University Galveston Campus is committed to its mission of education, research and public service in the general field of marine resources. With its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay, TAMUG offers students and faculty unique academic and research opportunities unavailable elsewhere.

Texas A&M University Galveston Campus offers graduate programs through three departments at TAMUG. A PhD in Marine and Coastal Management and Science (MCMS) and a Masters of Marine Resources Management (MARM) program are offered through the Department of Marine Sciences, a Master of Science or PhD through the Interdisciplinary Degree Program in Marine Biology (MARB-IDP) in the Department of Marine Biology, and a Masters of Maritime Administration and Logistics (MMAL) through the Department of Maritime Administration. Students are admitted to these programs through the Admissions Office at Texas A&M University Galveston Campus.

Texas A&M University in College Station offers graduate work and a graduate program on the Galveston campus.  The Department of Ocean Engineering offers a 30 credit Master of Science in Ocean Engineering degree exclusively on the Galveston Campus. Graduate coursework is offered through the following departments: Biology, Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences, Oceanography, Ecosystem Science and Management, Civil Engineering and Ocean Engineering.  For the students enrolled in College Station degrees, students must complete one or two semesters in College Station, during which time they must take nine hours per semester of formal course work. All other course work and research activities may be conducted in Galveston.
