Towson is known for being a great institution academically. The nursing and child development program there is known to be a great program. If you plan to study journalism, I'd say go elsewhere. The program is old school and need some serious revamping. You can utilize a mass communications/journalism degree in so many fields. But neither the career center or the classes prepare you for a career. They just teach you how the basics. The program there is very subpar. The career center need to step it up as far as connecting students with potential jobs after graduation. I also have a problem with how Towson wouldn't allow students to take an internship until junior year. Being in the setting of a newsroom, radio station, publishing office, government agency or wherever else at the beginning of your college journey really helps as far as knowing what exactly you want to do by the time you graduate. Until someone wakes this program up and get with the times I would say to pass on this university as far as the journals field goes. Journalism is way too competitive to go to a subpar school especially if you want to be an on air reporter. As far as diversity and extracurricular on campus: this school is Greek life heavy and not very cultural. Also, a lot of commuters are here too.
Towson is a great college and has an excellent Speech-Language Pathology program! I would highly recommend this school for undergraduate or graduate level courses! Towson offers a variety of majors with quality teachers . Towson has the best undergraduate and graduate Speech-Language Pathology Program , so if you're interested in Speech-Pathology , definitely check out Towson
Towson is an excellent school in an excellent location. They are working towards making the school more sustainable and modern, which is always great. Nearby mall allows for a city, busy feel within the county. Overall great institution and location.
Towson University offered me a great education from a state university. The school was large but not as large as the University of Maryland, so you got more direct instruction from professors and smaller class sizes. There were plenty of clubs and organizations on campus to involve yourself in to supplement your studies, and it just had a great over all atmosphere.
What is a Satellite Campus you might ask? Well it is a campus that host for more than one University. The professors from the University go to the satellite campus and teach their courses on behalf of their University. I went to the Universities of Shady Grove campus where I received all my educational courses from the top Towson University's professors. I did not have to commute far nor live on campus. It was a close drive and I got to stay with my parents until I graduated. The best part of it all is the class size. They are smaller than a usual course on the main campus and you get to create strong bonds with your professors and colleagues.
I loved Towson, the classes helped prepare me for my graduate study and most professors were more than willing to help out for class or for mentorship. I do wish there had been more opportunities for lab research at Towson, but I was lucky to find a nearby program with the help of my advisor.
It was great teachers are good.Best thing is there is a big campus and you can socialize.
Towson University is wonderful in terms of curriculum and faculty members. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and worldly and have practical experience in their fields. My program - art history - was rigorous and captivating. I can say the same for the Honors Program. The educational experience was definitely worth the money. However, the administration is a different story. I had difficulty with them on numerous occasions. I had trouble having them apply the private scholarship I received (resulting in having to take extra semester to spread out costs as it wasn't processed in a timely manner), they lost my immunization records, etc. A friend of mine was told he was not in their system after receiving an acceptance letter, signing up for classes, etc. because they had spelled his name wrong. Parking is AWFUL, so if you commute, you'd be better off parking off campus and biking. They ticket like CRAZY, even though they do not have enough spaces (they sell more passes than parking spaces) and in the winter, the whole roof of the garage is off limits if it snows. I was rarely in the science and math buildings, but the art and liberal arts buildings were wonderful - and they had updated computer labs accessible on almost every floor. The school is wonderful in terms of academics and campus life, but they do have their own issues as well, though these are minor things in the long term.
I had an impeccable education at Towson University, specifically in the Theatre Arts Department. There, students and professors alike embraced challenges, diversity, and a variety of topics that are not generally covered in a standardized theatrical degree (ie. every student has a hand across the spectrum of theatrical endeavors from design to dramaturgy). As an acting student, I was encouraged to write, and am now attending NYU's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, something I would have never dreamed of a few years back. It all started with my time at Towson.
Excellent educational experience. Small college feel with small class sizes. Professors were wonderful, passionate, and got to know their students individually. Best decision I made!
