Towson University


Towson University is Maryland’s university of opportunities. With more than 150 years of experience pushing possibilities, TU is recognized as one of America’s top regional public universities and a leader in academic excellence, research and discovery. As the largest university in Greater Baltimore and Maryland’s fastest-growing university, Towson University’s momentum is always accelerating with more than 22,700 current students and more than 100 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences and applied professional fields. Located amid one of the East Coast’s cultural and economic epicenters, TU is a beacon and powerful catalyst in the Mid-Atlantic region partnering with hundreds of businesses and organizations, impacting communities and fueling change. Towson University is currently ranked as a leading regional university by both Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report. TU is also one of only a handful of institutions where graduation and retention rates are the same for all students, a result of a deeply inclusive culture with a focus on equity among all students, faculty and staff.
