Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is in a prime location for potential opportunities in internships and jobs in the same field. However, living expenses off campus are very high.

Learning environment is conducive, and lectures are interactive. Teaching aids like projectors and charts are state of the art. Instructors are very knowledgeable and professional in carrying out their lectures. More improvement needs to be done in terms of communication for online classes. Interactive platforms online need to be established for students.

Good classes, great instructors. Curriculum is very easy. No academic competitiveness. Majority of students are not graduate program material. would like to see A&M make the admissions and program more strict.

Texas A&M University at Galveston's Marine Biology IDP Program recently opened for master's and Ph.D track students in 2008, allowing students to take classes either in person or through Camtasia/Saba Centra in conference rooms through both Texas A&M University College Station and TAMU-Corpus Christi. Additionally, many of these courses are offered at Galveston rates (which are cheaper than College Station). This allows students a greater opportunity to take courses relevant to thesis/dissertation projects in development and to their own specific career interests. Teaching assistantships are widely available to both Master's/Ph.D students and those who have found an advisor of interest may also be able to obtain Research Assistantships. A caution to Master's students: Unlike the Ph.D students, TA'ships do NOT cover tuition for Master's students and therefore students must rely on financial aid/scholarships to cover tuition while on a Teaching Assistantship (by law, in the State of Texas, Research Assistantships must pay a student's tuition). The Research and Graduate Studies office is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the specifics of each program and funding opportunities and hosts several in-house research symposia for students to gain experience in presenting for outside academic society symposia related to their research discipline. The Marine Biology Dept. offers MARB Mini-Grants also to fund travel, research, sample analysis, etc. that students can apply for each fiscal year on a first come, first serve basis. Graduate student life can, at times, be grueling and lonely. At TAMUG, the graduate community has formed the Galveston Graduate Student Association (GGSA) to encourage camaraderie amongst all the graduate students through volunteerism in the local community, participation in intramural sports leagues on campus, and off-campus social gatherings at local restaurants/bars. Plus, GGSA fundraises each year through auctions, donations, and calendar sales to raise money for Mini- and Micro- grants offered to students each spring. Overall, TAMUG has a great value for the education you receive and a great faculty with a wide breadth of academic/research interests.

The graduate program, Masters of Maritime Logistics and Administration, is still new. There are definitely some kinks to work out. Many of the teachers lack experience directly in the field. The field itself from a graduate prospective is still very new as well. The faculty and staff make up for the lack of direct field experience however. There is also constant influx of opportunities for international studies, internship opportunities, and jobs. I will reserve judgement on giving this program a perfect score until I've seen how it works for me in the end, but, definitely, so far so good.
