  • Degree: Nursing
  • Graduation Year: 2008
"Great school with a lot of instruction and guidance into the nursing profession. Good exposure to graduate nursing programs and degrees and preparation for a post graduate nursing degree. I think it needed more nclex review prep in class rather than an additional cost"

"Towson Universities advisement center is disappointing, misleading and can hold students back from graduating on time. Students that are transferring and/or changing majors will have a difficult time attaining the core requirements, getting ahold of advisors and signing up for required classes. I would not recommend this school to any student trying to graduate within four years. They require you to take a large amount of unnecessary classes that do not relate to your major. Collaboration between advisement and the graduation committee is non existent, and they will pass you around from person to person to receive an answer and guidance. The school also provides little to no guidance for careers post graduation. I know I share this same experience with numerous other students at Towson, check out their graduation statistics! Do not recommend."

"The classes taught are not too board and are very interesting. I've taken 3 special topic courses at Towson and all of them were topics I've been wanting to study. I have been able to make a better understanding of the world through the knowledge I have gained through Towson. I love tackling real issues and topics in my classes. The professors are also very passionate about what they teach, our government and the people in it. This makes learning feel more impactful because the teachers care about the classes they teach and it's also my focus of study."

  • Degree: Psychology
  • Graduation Year: 1996
"At the time of my attendance, the school was called Towson State University. I was originally an Audiology major. The school changed the program requirements so much that I decided to pursue my minor area of focus, Psychology. In retrospect, it was a perfect move. The Psychology department was engaging, challenging and timely. The assignments were thorugh provoking and relevant. The skills and knowledge I obtained servced me well throughout my life thus far. I was commuting, working student, Off-Campus housing was amazing and affordable. I was not heavily involved in athletics or social activities, however, my classmates raved about these opportunities. I have been happy with the reputation of my college choice as well. Never had to feel there was a negative stigma associated with it. Always proud to state I was a Towson Graduate. I did not pursue my graduate degree there because I live too far away now and it would not be possible to make the commute."

"The degree program, Family Science, was incredibly interesting. The professors had a vast knowledge of the classes that taught, and they were always available for meetings. I learned about the family through psychological and sociological view points and it has helped impact my choice for a graduate degree."

"I had a lovely experience at Towson. I had many mentors who were able to help me with deciding my career choice and who were also able to help me pursue that career choice. My professors helped me get into my graduate school by writing me letters of recommendation which I will also greatly appreciate. Just like any college, there will always be a few professors who were unsatisfactory, but that will occur at any college, regardless. I would strongly recommend Towson to those who are looking for a solid education."

"Earning a bachelors degree at Towson University was a well rounded experience. The class sizes for those pursuing psychology were small and personal, meaning you had a better chance at getting to know your college professors. The psychology degree also provided a variety of classes that made it easier to be more well-rounded once the program was over. The campus environment was nice and the demographics of the school helped Towson to be a "salad bowl" of people all coming together with different views and ideas."

  • Degree: Occupational Therapy
  • Graduation Year: 2019
"Towson University's Occupational Therapy BS/MS program provides students with knowledge on a wide variety of subjects, ranging from anatomy and physiology to health management classes. Although the work is rigorous, I believe that the requirements needed in order to graduate are manageable as long as you have a strong work ethic. I feel well prepared to go out on my Level II Fieldwork experience in January and am excited to graduate and pursue a career as an Occupational Therapist. On the other hand, there are not many scholarships that are provided by the University that relate to this major. With that being said, it is important to have a financial plan for the duration of your time in the program, as there will be a duration of time during the program that requires you to work 40 hours per week for six months without pay. For out-of-state students, this may be a challenge, so it is encouraged that you research potential outside scholarships that can provide some financial relief. Other than some of the financial hardships that may come along with any college program, this program will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to pass the NBCOT and obtain a job after graduation. It is also beneficial because you do not have to worry about applying to a master's program, as this is a combined program so as long as you pass all of your classes, you are automatically accepted into the master's portion. Overall, I feel comfortable with the education I received from this program and I am excited to see what my last year entails."

"With Towson being a liberal arts college, you have the opportunity to explore many different paths to see what your interests are and I took full advantage of that. I took an array of classes that helped me truly find what I was passionate about. Most of the professors look out for you and help you cultivate your potential."

  • Degree: Music
  • Graduation Year: 2017
"I knew I wanted to continue my music studies entering college. However, I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do within music. Luckily my advisor helped me explore different career options while earning my Bachelor of Science in Music. I grew to enjoy working in events and operations for artistic events. The music faculty allowed me to also learn how to manage a music ensemble during my undergraduate studies. Now, I know I'd like to work as a concert planner for a non-profit organization, but I will need to earn my Master's in Arts Administration to further my knowledge within the field. So the plan is to either attend New York University, Florida State University, or Carnegie Mellon University. and earn my Master's in Arts Administration."
