Maritime Studies - Minor

The Maritime Studies minor offers students an interdisciplinary selection of courses to compliment the majors offered at Texas A&M University at Galveston.  The minor requires a total of 15 hours – three hours each of Anthropology, English, and History/Political Science, and 6 hours of electives to be chosen from Maritime Studies courses.  The broad range of liberal arts courses offered by this minor provides an opportunity for TAMUG students in other majors to expand their knowledge and experience of maritime topics. The courses in the minor have been carefully selected for content, class size, and instructor, to give students an optimum learning experience and to enrich all of the majors offered at TAMUG.
