New Degree Program in Port Management at Historically Black Texas Southern University in Houston

Texas Southern University is launching a new maritime transportation management and security degree program. The program will train students in port security, logistics, and the environment. The program was made possible with a two-year commitment of $2 million from the Port of Houston Authority which seeks to increase the number of students who will be available for management positions at the port.

The program is the only one of its kind at a historically black college or university.
