Study Abroad & Study Away
The Study Abroad & Away Office creates high impact learning experiences for all Towson University students to gain global perspectives as part of their educational journey. Our intentional advising, collaborative campus connections, and strategic program development reduce academic and financial barriers, increase access for underrepresented students, and expand scholarly excellence beyond the boundaries of the TU campus. In support of the TU mission, we offer opportunities that foster intellectual inquiry and critical thinking to empower students on their lifelong path to becoming socially responsible, engaged citizens of the world.
We strive to be recognized as a model for our innovative education abroad and study away practices and aspire to advance the internationalization of Towson University by increasing student participation through curriculum integration and partnerships.
