I want to attend Texas A&M Corpus Christi because i want to be a marine biologist. It's also a beautiful campus. It has a lot of Majors, and it will help you achieve your goals in life. There is more to it then just academics there are a lot of activities you can do.

Before joining the Texas A&M University System in 1989. The school became a public university in 1973 when the Baptist General Convention of Texas sold it to the State.

There is a tradition that they do for there students who have made it to their junior year. It is called Ring Ceremony, the students are given a ring to wear. Around the campus there are many places to study with your friends or just to relax.

career path

     The career path i have chosen is a Marine Biologist. TAMUCC is known for being the collage everyone attends to be a marine biologist. The Marine Biology Program is designed for students with an interest in one or several sub disciplines of marine biology who wish to pursue careers in higher education, government, or private industry. The Marine Biology degree is different from others because it is an interdisciplinary degree program (IDP) combining the strengths of three universities within the Texas A&M University System; Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University-Galveston, and Texas A&M University.

     You gain a broad understanding of marine biology. And you acquire skills necessary to conduct independent biological studies. You need to develop the skills necessary to present and publish their work at national and international venues.
