5 College Sophomore

Majors: each majors are specific from one another because in each major you get a set schedule which gives you a list of classes that has to be met for your major. this way you don't waste time in a class that will not be needed for your major. I love this option that Bowie State University has.

Bowie State University is a close-knit community within a small community. Being the first historically black college and university in the state of Maryland, Bowie offers more than just an educational experience: It offers a reputation surrounded by history and tradition.

The people are also what make BSU a special experience. From the Greek life to the professors and faculty that are eager and willing to help students succeed, Bowie State University is not just an educational institution: It's a family supporting each other through a process of undergrad and graduate studies.
