Towson University is recognized as Maryland’s preeminent teacher education institution as well as a national model for the professional preparation of classroom teachers. The Department of Mathematics at Towson University has a distinguished history in the preparation of middle and high school teachers, as well as preparing preK–5 teachers to teach mathematical concepts and skills. The Department offers outstanding, NCATE accredited undergraduate major and minor programs, as well as the finest graduate program in the state of Maryland for the initial and advanced preparation of teachers of mathematics.
The Department of Mathematics has an excellent faculty. Committed to superior teaching, faculty members bring both scholarly and practical experience to the classroom. Classes are generally small, rarely exceeding 30 students. We encourage students to meet with their professors outside of class to facilitate the learning process with one-on-one conversations.
Outside of class, mathematics students have many opportunities to get involved. They might work on new problems with the Applied Mathematics Laboratory team, join one of the three student math clubs, or apply for the university's honors program. Other resources available to students include: a departmental mathematics placement test that helps students determine which classes are right for them, the Mathematics Tutoring Center, scholarships, awards, financial aid and on-campus jobs.
