A leader in education for 150 years, Towson University prepares you to succeed in
the rapidly changing, diverse and challenging field of education. Engaging academic
courses and clinical experiences allow you to meet and respond creatively to the critical
education challenges of the 21st century.
The College of Education at Towson University has a distinguished history in the preparation
of classroom teachers, school leaders and education specialists.
The college, in close collaboration with public and private agencies, offers a comprehensive
slate of acclaimed, performance-based, professional education programs for the initial
and advanced preparation of educators. Our graduates are helping to transform education
in Maryland school systems and beyond.
Our programs require you to master and demonstrate knowledge, skills and professional
dispositions that place the learner at the center of an active learning process, and
embrace a learner-centered focus on teaching and learning aimed at higher order skills
and understanding. Our programs align directly with the 2011 InTASC Standards, current
SPA standards, and Maryland College and Career Ready Standards, to ensure that our
students are prepared for changes in how PreK-12 student learning is assessed and
how professional educators will be evaluated.
You will learn to integrate theory with the wisdom of practice, develop and refine
your knowledge and skills of teaching and student learning, and become well prepared
for entry into your professional role. Towson faculty members include a diverse community
of learners/teachers/scholars who are models of teaching and learning skills. Our
transformational programs and instructional methods enable you to successfully participate
in the emerging world of digital learning and teaching.
The majority of graduates from the College of Education enter America's schools as
teachers, school leaders, and education specialists. Careers for educators are also
available in a variety of non-school settings: government, industry, media production,
military, correctional institutions and other emerging fields.
