In the College of Liberal Arts, we believe that advising is an indispensable component of your educational experience. It provides you with the support you need to explore and clarify your academic and professional goals. Learning is enhanced when you work collaboratively with your adviser to plan and implement a program of study that reflects your intellectual interests, personal values, and career goals.
Advising underscores the importance of planning across all four years in a strategic and progressive manner. Your needs and interests will change at throughout your Towson experience. From the first year through graduation, each year has a different advising focal point: transition, focus, engagement and commencement. If you are a transfer student, you will also benefit from advising regardless of the number of units you transfer to Towson.
Each department has developed an advising program that reflects the specific requirements of the major. Advisers will assist you in selecting courses in your major as well as those you will need to complete the University Core requirements.
