Towson University is recognized among the nation’s best regional public institutions for its excellent degree programs in ¬fields that include education, communications, business, health care, fine arts, and the sciences.

Spring 2015 marked the official kick-off of Towson University’s year-long celebration of its 150th anniversary. The university’s first commencement took place in June 1866 with just 16 normal school (education) graduates.  In May 2015, more than 3,500 students graduated with more than 60 possible majors.

Today, the Towson educational experience emphasizes service learning, civic engagement, and study abroad. Its interdisciplinary partnerships with public and private enterprises throughout Maryland provide students with opportunities for research, internships, and jobs.

The university is annually lauded by such prestigious publications as Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, The Princeton Review, and Forbes. The U.S. News & World Report 2015 America’s Best College Guide ranks Towson 15th in its Top Public Schools–Regional Universities (North) category.

Located eight miles north of Baltimore, Towson’s beautiful, 328-acre campus offers easy access to a wealth of academic and community resources. Towson also offers courses online and at off-campus locations throughout Maryland.
