Currently, the Honors College includes some 700 students from across all academic colleges on campus. Professors from a wide variety of disciplines volunteer to teach in Honors. Honors classes emphasize interdisciplinarity and center on lively seminar-style discussions on the course material. With an enrollment cap of 20 students, these courses allow greater personal attention from faculty. Many first- and second-year Honors courses satisfy Core Curriculum requirements. All accepted first-year students who begin in the fall term receive an Honors College scholarship and, if they live on campus, are housed in the Honors Living Learning Community, located in Douglass House. Douglass provides the setting for Honors events and unique social opportunities that support individual and collective development. Current Towson University students as well as students transferring from other institutions are also encouraged to apply for admission to Honors.
