Cadets who are interested in undertaking a comprehensive maritime studies program at a respected school and in an ideal location should consider Texas A & M University in Galveston, Texas.
Academic programs of study at Galveston are all geared towards the study of the ocean, from a scientific and seamanship perspective. Within that general area of study, students may choose a major such as:
*Marine Engineering Technology
*Ocean and Coastal Resources
All of Galveston’s campuses are located in close proximity to harbors or bays, offering easy access for research and sailing around the bay as part of classroom studies or for recreation. In fact, the school’s ship (the Texas Clipper) is part of each student’s experience, as they sail on it to learn the skills of seamanship and navigation.
As students prepare to graduate they take a test to become official members of the U.S. Merchant Marine.
Admissions applications are available online and should be submitted with an application fee, transcripts and ACT or SAT scores. A minimum SAT score of 1500 or minimum ACT score of 18 is required. Students who do not meet these application requirements may still apply and possibly be accepted under provisional status.
Texas A & M’s website features a thorough listing of financial aid resources and tips on how to apply for scholarships, Texas grants and loans. Certain forms of aid are based on financial need while others, like scholarships, are primarily determined by academic merit.
