Degree: Public Administration

I had a great experience with TUW. I recently completed the MPA program. The faculty and staff engaged to ensure there were no communication gaps. It is a great model for busy professionals. All of the professors were responsive and knowledgeable. The tuition is affordable and has allowed me to further my education. TUW has been one of my best educational experiences. I highly recommend TUW.

I had an exceptional experience with Touro in the MFT program. it is a great fit for working students, single parents, people in rural areas like myself, who do not have access to traditional education options, or anyone who cannot attend traditional classes in person. Of course, one has to be very motivated and willing to take an active role in the education process, with the degree being done fully online. Touro is very upfront that they do not provide practicum placement for students- they provide... Read More

The DHS program was disorganized, underdeveloped, and unprofessional like it was run off the corner of someone's desk. There was no original coursework, only links to academic papers and websites. An administrator could have done the job of posting links. The professors were barely attending the course, seemed indifferent, and there was little to no guidance or instructions for students. Emails went unanswered and links to coursework were sometimes broken. There was no guarantee of students learning... Read More

It's a no for me; the instructors are actually decent. However, administrative staff members such as the Community Placement Liaison Advisor, Director, MFT Program MFT Faculty, Assistant Director, and MFT Program Coordinator of Practicum MFT Faculty have little expertise in the field. They are unconcerned about consistency or basic abilities. They are often telling students that they are too busy to help them. And blame the students for things like missing documentation or unapproved placements.... Read More

This is a great program if you are a busy parent/working and are trying to change careers. Although there could be some improvements the overall program and faculty are effective and the education is affordable. There aren't many opportunities for people who want to become a LMFT in an online format.

The professors were barely in attendance. There was very little interaction or meaningful feedback. Many professors used templated sentences as feedback. The program felt like a solitary correspondence course and did not seem to have the academics at a doctorate level. I would recommend to choose a school with a more reputable program.

THIS PLACE IS A DIPLOMA MILL! If you actually want to attend a school that cares about it's students and invests in their education look elsewhere. The professors are absentee and the course work only consists of obtuse readings and written discussions about these readings. There are no recorded or written lectures by the professors. 90% of the time the readings are impossible to understand, academic nonsense that will not apply in any way to your future career. I've also experienced, in multiple... Read More

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy

The overall values of TUW is great however for it being an online school, you would hope they would have a bigger and better with supportive staff especially in your final year. The instructors are fantastic, but the MFT staff could do so much better. It seems very understaffed not as supportive as it could be, lacks in following up meaning when a student has an urgent message to be answered it takes 3 days before hearing back. Its not as consistent. It could be better. If you want consistency, strong... Read More

I attended NY Medical College, which is a Touro school, for my MPH and had a great experience. The coursework was rigorous and the professors were helpful, accessible, and expected excellence. So I didn't hesitate to pursue my doctorate at Touro. I completed 4 courses before I withdrew -- the courses were almost identical to the classes I already took for my MPH, except a bit more volume of work was required. It was difficult to get in touch with professors and in a couple of cases when I emailed... Read More

I was nervous about getting an MBA at Touro because it isn’t a big name program but decided to because (1) they are a non-profit, (2) they are affordable, (3) they have an established online teaching program (its still the pandemic) and (4) their program is currently in the ACBSP accreditation process (currently WSCUC). I went into the program with low expectations but I have been pleasantly surprised with quality of the program = Berkeley’s online classes!

I attended TUW part-time and completed the MFT program in three years. I completed the practicum portion in ten months, working in a school setting counseling children and adolescents. I'm currently waiting for my associate number. All my colleagues from TUW are completing post hours in private practice, community mental health agencies, mental health centers specializng in specific theoretical orientations (eg, DBT); some colleagues have already become licensed. I recommend TUW's MFT program if... Read More

The Marriage and Family program is a quality program and school. It is not easy, but you'll learn a lot. I am just about finished with my second practicum course. If you want to do your MFT coursework here, it is important that you know you will be required to record sessions (audio and video) with your clients. You'll need to get the clients permission to record. All schools are not like this, but because Touro has COAMFTE certification, it is a mandatory requirement that you do that. You'll also...

While I felt like the degree was useful as a stepping stone to my current PhD, and the tuition was quite low for a regionally accredited program, the actual program felt disjointed a bit. There were several times where the course material either was repetitive, or it was not that in depth. I actually really enjoyed about 2-3 out of the 13 courses I took because those professors seemed quite engaged in the courses. The other ones barely seemed to even be there. Also, the actual grading system was... Read More

Degree: Psychology

I recently complete Touro University's MFT program and have just been accepted into their doctoral program PsyD. I researched carefully before choosing a university. As a parent and working professional, I needed flexibilty but wanted a solid education. I needed a high level of value and I did not want to graduate with $75+ in loans like so many of my colleagues. I also required an MFT program that was regionally accredited as my state requires it for licensure. Touro's program was a great fit, hitting... Read More

Touro University Worldwide (TUW) currently is concealing information that its Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program requires at least two people to complete. I am single, and I am by myself. Thus, I cannot complete this program. No one disclosed this requirement to me before I enrolled in the program. After six weeks into the program, I learned that this program cannot be completed without another person. I asked Kim Strictler (Senior Director of Enrollment Counseling) about this requirement,...

I am an MBA student at Touro University Worldwide and I am pleased with the curriculum and diverse teaching style. The proactive staff and professors provide excellent assistance in assisting the students reach educational and career goals. The other advantages of attending a not for profit university that is regionally accredited with a low tuition is a plus!

Thanks to this program, I was able to receive my degree within 14 months. I took two classes each term and never felt overwhelmed. This program provides great resources and tools to help me learn and reach my full potential. I highly recommend TUW and think it's the best decision I ever made.

Started the public health online master's program in spring 2017. The professors we're nice and interactive. The format was okay. Alot of postings, discussions and some readings. Then we did big papers at the end. I felt like it wasn't the best format and not very well thought out for online program of it's nature and school affiliation.

From start to finish in the application process, I've encountered people such as M.J. and F. P. who were hands on through my process. There were some hiccups along the way, but they were on it and made sure that everything was smooth. I truly appreciate there diligence and efficiency to ensure my enrollment was a success. As a result, my first semester was a success and I passed with flying colors. If their professionalism is indicative to how the remainder of my time will be, I'm in good hands.
