Study Abroad    

Travel the World

Maritime transportation is what drives the global economy. Any country with access to the ocean has a port, and most countries receive a substantial amount of trade via ocean-going vessels. This opens up a world of opportunities for you to learn the industry in an exotic place with a fresh perspective, and make some new friends while you’re at it. The study abroad program is one of the most rewarding experiences undertaken in college, and as part of the greater Texas A&M Network, TAMUG has a huge array of opportunities.
