Ask a Peer Adviser
Study Abroad Peer Advisers can help you research programs, look up classes, and give
you general tips about studying and living overseas. Send them an email at peeradvisor AT_TOWSON to ask a specific question or to make an appointment to meet with one of them. You
don’t have to be interested in the country where the Peer Adviser studied in order
to talk with them.
NOTE: Students who meet with a Peer Adviser are still required to attend a Study Abroad group advising meeting and meet with a Study Abroad Adviser.

TU Gender, Health, and Social Justice in Ghana, Minimester 2019
I am a senior French literature and International Studies double-major with a minor
in Women and Gender studies. My program allowed me to focus on Modern Standard Arabic, study
Darija (Moroccan-Arabic), stay in a French-immersion home-stay, and take courses on
the history, culture, and politics of Morocco and the Islamic world- all within the
span of three unforgettable months! The knowledge and experiences gained in and outside
of the classroom changed my viewpoint on what I want to do in the future, and I plan
on studying abroad again, soon.
TU Kansai Gaidai University Exchange in Japan, Academic Year 2017-18
I’m a senior International Studies major here at Towson. For the duration of my junior
year, I studied abroad at Kansai Gaidai University in Hirakata, Japan. Going to Japan
had always been a dream of mine, however, I didn’t know living there could become
a reality until I came to Towson. Thanks to the exchange program Towson has with Kansai
Gaidai, I was able to pay Towson tuition while I was in Japan, making studying abroad
much easier financially. My year in Japan was without a doubt the most challenging
and rewarding year of my life, and the experiences I had and the people I met there
continue to shape who I am today. I encourage anyone interested in studying abroad
to take a chance and go for it!
TU Global Internships in London, Summer 2017
I am a junior studying a Mass Communications track in Public Relations with a minor
in Creative Writing. During my time abroad I was fortunate enough to intern with a
nonprofit organization in London. This opportunity allowed me to get firsthand work
experience while simultaneously supporting my love for travel. I am always willing
to talk about my own abroad experience, and I want to help anyone interested find
a program that is the perfect fit for them!
