If you are looking to make the most of your university experience by challenging yourself both academically and personally, by having access to a wide array of unique opportunities, and by making great friends along the way – then the Honors College may be just the place for you.
Our mission is to provide you with an enhanced educational experience designed to challenge you to grow in critical ways – as a creative thinker, as a developing leader, and as an engaged member of the larger community. And in an effort to fulfill this mission even more effectively, we are initiating a major transformation within the Honors College. Beginning this year, what we offer will be increasingly organized around the themes of urbanization and globalization – two of the most powerful forces shaping today’s world.
Small, discussion-oriented honors courses and seminars led by outstanding professors, chances to collaborate with professors on individual research projects, internships and service-learning opportunities in a wide range of areas, study abroad experiences and chances to participate in regional and national honors conferences are just a few of the exciting, valuable opportunities Towson University honors students enjoy. Beyond this enriched academic experience, we also offer a growing range of special activities and events – dynamic speakers, film series, global issues forums, as well as experiential learning projects in metropolitan Baltimore and beyond.
Support for our mission is also provided by Douglass House – the designated living-learning community for the Towson University Honors College. Douglass House has just opened this year and its first residents are giving it rave reviews. Be sure to check out all that it has to offer!
The Honors College is open to students from all majors. So, if you are looking for a challenge – as well as an opportunity to gain the experience, knowledge and skills you will need to flourish in an increasingly urban, globalized world – the Towson University Honors College may be just for you.
