The second bachelor's program provides students the opportunity to pursue new career opportunities or achieve personal goals by completing a second undergraduate degree in one of more than 60 majors.
To qualify for admission, students must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited college or university. A maximum of 90 transferable credits will be applied toward the second bachelor's degree and the student will not have to complete Core Curriculum requirements, except for an upper-level writing course. Second bachelor's students must complete a minimum of 30 units at Towson University and meet all the requirements for the major.
