- Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) is an ocean-oriented campus offering academic degrees, research, continuing education and public service in marine science, engineering, business and transportation. TAMUG includes the Texas State Maritime Academy, one of only five state maritime training academies in the United States and the only one located on the Gulf of Mexico. It is also the only training academy affiliated with a comprehensive research and teaching university. Computer science and technical writing courses are taught across curricula, regardless of a student’s major field. In every course each semester, formally administered questionnaires invite students to appraise the effectiveness of teaching.
- TAMUG provides undergraduate academic instruction in marine and maritime-related degree programs in Marine Biology (MARB), Marine Sciences (MARS), Marine Engineering Technology (MARE), Marine Transportation (MART), Marine Fisheries (MARF), Maritime Systems Engineering (MASE), Maritime Administration (MARA), Maritime Studies (MAST) and Ocean and Coastal Resources (OCRE). All students complete the University Core Curriculum requirements set by TAMU to ensure a broad-based education.
- Texas A&M University at Galveston is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Maritime Systems Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
- TAMUG is located near the mouth of Galveston Bay with close access to the Gulf of Mexico. The University has facilities at three separate campus locations. Most instructional programs are taught at the 130-acre Mitchell Campus on Pelican Island (with housing for 600+ students). Research and classroom work are conducted at the three-acre Ft. Crockett Campus on Galveston Island, including an additional 15,200 sq. ft. of space leased from the National Marine Fisheries Services (which together provide approximately 90,000 sq. ft. for marine laboratory research). The 10-acre Offatts Bayou Campus houses the Center for Marine Training and Safety and student recreational facilities.
