Inspiring Student Exploration in Science and Mathematics for the 21st Century
The Fisher College of Science and Mathematics provides excellent undergraduate and post-baccalaureate graduate education in the sciences and mathematics. At the undergraduate level we have outstanding B.S. degree programs in biology, chemistry, computer and information sciences, geology, forensic chemistry, mathematics, and physics, as well as interdisciplinary B.S. degree programs in environmental science and studies, and in molecular biology, biochemistry, and bioinformatics. Our undergraduate programs for preparing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teachers lead the region, and have a national reputation as well because of our new Towson UTeach Program for preparing high school STEM teachers.
Research experiences are an important aspect of a well-rounded undergraduate education in the natural and mathematical sciences. A wide variety of undergraduate research experiences, both at Towson University and nationwide, are available to our students. For more information see our website on
At the graduate level we have M.S. degree programs in applied information technology, biology, computer science, applied and industrial mathematics, environmental science, forensic science, and mathematics education. We also offer a doctoral program in information technology.
Our School of Emerging Technologies focuses on innovative, interdisciplinary, and emerging uses of technology, and it includes a strong emphasis on faculty/student research opportunities, a Towson hallmark.
The Jess and Mildred Fisher Endowment supports four-year undergraduate scholarships for outstanding incoming freshmen, endowed chairs for some of our top junior science faculty, and special projects that further the College's mission. More information about these first two programs may be found at the
So, what do you want to be and where do you see yourself in 10 years, or 15, or 20?
