Towson nurtures innovators armed with the knowledge and skills to solve complex problems in the rapidly changing science and technology sectors. Our distinctive, student-oriented teaching and learning environment will give you the theoretical foundation and advanced competencies employers, professional schools and graduate programs demand.
Best of Both Worlds
The college sits on Towson’s beautiful, walkable campus, housing state-of-the-art facilities, labs and equipment that you would expect of a big university. While small classes and faculty committed to mentorship and student success ensure that you won’t get lost in the crowd.
Towson is located in the Baltimore/Washington corridor. The region is rich in high-tech companies and government research facilities in need of well-prepared graduates in science and mathematics.
We know that the optimal way to learn science is by doing science. That’s why the college is dedicated to providing opportunities for mentored research, independent study, internships and honors programs. Students run experiments in laboratories, engage with the environment through field studies, conduct research and receive training in state-of-the-art instrumentation.
Through internships and research experiences, majors in the college gain practical workplace know-how that often leads directly to employment upon graduation.
Our faculty are distinguished teachers, scholars and practicing scientists and mathematicians. They pride themselves on a high level of interaction with students in the classroom, the laboratory and the field. The college is a research intensive environment where students work alongside faculty conducting applied and basic research leading to the expansion of knowledge, important discoveries and new products and processes that benefit the scientific community and society.
