Exceptional Minds. Extraordinary Futures.
In response to COVID-19, Towson University is open with limited services. Although you cannot visit the Honors College, we are still available during normal business hours by email at honors AT_TOWSON. If you're an admitted student, you can find resources and links at our admitted student website , and you are also encouraged to fill out the Connect With a TU Honors Student interest form to speak with a current student. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Towson University Honors College is committed to the intellectual and character development of highly engaged undergraduate students. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary study, research and co-curricular experiences, we seek to cultivate inquisitive minds and foster broad knowledge that strengthens students’ scholarly interests, nurtures their talents, develops their sense of ethical responsibility, and enables them to navigate an increasingly complex globalized world.
Opportunities for advanced research projects and theses, study abroad, internships, and service-learning courses offer direct experiential learning shaped by a student’s interests. The experiences and the products resulting from these courses better position students for career opportunities or graduate school.
Seminars are the core of the Honors curriculum, and each one is designed to explore topics from multiple scholarly points of view. Our discussion-based, collaborative classes examine creative topics that you’ll only find here, in small settings of 10 to 20 students.
Honors faculty represent a range of disciplines and scholarly outlooks. What they share is a passion for teaching and for advancing student learning. Faculty work with students in the Honors College by choice, and they bring to the program examples of intellectual curiosity and professional accomplishment. Most importantly, they are eager to support students who seek opportunities for growth.
Honors courses not only reflect the different disciplines that faculty draw upon in creating the courses but also the different academic perspectives of students within the courses. 97% of Honors seminars contain students from at least four of the six degree-granting colleges at Towson University, offering a rich mix of student ideas seldom found in American higher education.
We are a small community of highly motivated individuals within a large university setting. Honors students are athletes, leaders, and dedicated members of their campus, local, and international communities. Douglass House, the Honors residential learning community, is where you can live, work, and learn with other Honors students in pursuit of your passions with the guidance of faculty and staff.
