The Texas Maritime Academy is the only maritime academy located on the Gulf of Mexico. Housed at Texas A&M University at Galveston, our students will earn both a Bachelor of Science degree from TX A&M University and the knowledge necessary to become licensed officers in the U. S. Merchant Marine. Participation in the Corps provides students with skills in leadership, management and self-discipline. The Deck program curriculum stresses seamanship, navigation, ship handling, cargo loading and maritime business. Our graduates are highly sought after in the exciting fields of marine transportation as licensed 3rd Mates or 3rd Assistant Engineers. While at Texas A&M University at Galveston, students are afforded the experience of university life with opportunities in student government, recreational sports, and a host of other student organizations. The Galveston campus offers undergraduate degrees in marine sciences, marine biology, marine engineering technology, marine transportation, maritime administration, ocean engineering, and liberal studies. Located along Galveston Bay, students have easy access to the surrounding waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This proximity to various aquatic activities affords students the chance for countless hands-on experiences that enhance their learning and is at the core of what sets Sea Aggies apart. As a member of the Texas A&M network, students are full members of the Aggie community and are eligible to receive the fabled Aggie Ring.
