TAMUG offers ocean-oriented, four-year courses with excellence in business, oceanographic and physical sciences, biological sciences, engineering and transportation and liberal arts. Degrees are awarded from Texas A&M 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. Several unique courses have been developed in response to the University’s marine orientation. For instance, "Literature of the Sea" looks at the sea through the works of great authors. "Introduction to Marine Sciences" introduces students to a number of disciplines through lectures, seminars and industrial contacts. The cruise geography course emphasizes the port areas being visited.
