The Honors College at Towson University provides
unique and challenging opportunities for the most highly qualified
and motivated students seeking intellectual and personal growth.
The Honors College involves students and faculty from across the
university in a community of scholars who together explore questions
within and beyond their disciplines. The Honors College serves,
therefore, as the center and symbol of the university's commitment
to academic excellence in the education of its undergraduates.
Approximately 700 students from all academic colleges and major
departments participate in the Honors College. Professors from a
variety of disciplines are selected to lead small Honors classes
which encourage interdisciplinary, multiple pedagogies, student
involvement, creativity, open discussion, as well as independent
Students' perspectives are expanded
as they explore areas not closely related to their disciplines and
are encouraged to work in their majors with greater intensity than
would be possible within traditional curricular programs. Thus,
the Honors College provides an environment in which students develop
their skills, cultivate their talents, and achieve excellence in
academics, research, service, and individual development, leading
to professional success and personal fulfillment.
