Five Reasons to Choose Towson Honors


Unique Learning Opportunities

Honors students engage in advanced research projects and experiential learning through study abroad, internships and service learning. These experiences better position students for successful careers and post-graduate study in a globalized world.


Enriching Seminar Classes

Seminars are the core of the honors curriculum and each one is designed to explore topics from multiple scholarly points of view. Honors classes have an average of 12 to 20 students, are discussion-based, collaborative and examine creative topics that are only taught in the Honors College.


Award-Winning Faculty

Outstanding teachers, prominent researchers, authors and scholars offer insights in their fields of study. Honors faculty are among the most innovative at Towson University.


Variety of Perspectives

Students in every major are members of the Honors College. Therefore, honors courses and co-curricular programs are especially diverse and interdisciplinary experiences push that students outside of their academic and interpersonal comfort zones.


Community Engagement

Honors students are athletes, they are leaders of student organizations and dedicated members of campus, local and international communities. Douglass House is the residence hall where honors students live, work and learn together in pursuit of their passions and lifelong learning goals.
