Towson University has a distinguished history in the preparation of classroom teachers and education specialists -- in the 2015-16 academic year, the university celebrated its 150th anniversary.

In 1866, Towson University began as the Maryland Normal School for Teachers and our institutional commitment to the preparation of teachers for schools in Maryland, the mid-Atlantic region and across the nation has continued ever since. While the majority of graduates from the College of Education enter America's schools as teachers and specialists, many also enter careers in non-school settings within the government sector, private industry, and other fields.
