The TAMUG University Studies concentration in Maritime Public Policy & Communication (MPPC) links two important fields of professional opportunity – Public Policy and Communication. It uniquely synthesizes the study of maritime public policy/policymaking with the study of international and intercultural communication methods, laws and regulations, and activism. MPPC students will focus their plan of study within the Texas A&M University Galveston campus Department of Liberal Studies (LIST), taking significant LIST coursework in public policy, political science, and communication. In addition, with a course selection pool that includes relevant curricula found in Maritime Administration and Marine Sciences, MPPC students engage a synergistic and broad interdisciplinary combination of study that is non-existent in any other major.
With an interdisciplinary approach to maritime issues in public policy and contemporary institutions and methods of global communication, MPPC is a particularly attractive offering for prospective students wishing to acquire a degree from TAMUG in something other than a STEM area. It provides students of good academic standing with a host of skills important to gaining careers in such areas as government, politics, urban planning, business, NGO’s, policymaking, mass media production and administration, journalism, public relations, teaching, and national security. As part and parcel of the TAMUG Department of Liberal Studies, MPPC is particularly well-suited for preparing students for graduate and law schools.
Students who pursue Univeristy Studies - MPPC will be required to have two minors in addition to their concentration.
