            2002-2004, Masters of Science, Environmental Science

            I enjoyed my time at TAMUCC; teaching was very hands-on and personal. Graduate class groups were small, there few courses where we had 1-2 students, which meant personalized attention. Loved the campus and great weather, the cost living was very affordable. Highly recommend TAMUCC. They have excellent Oil Spill program, EHS and GIS departments.
