Philosophy of Liberal Arts Education at Towson University

Excellence at Towson University begins with its commitment to a sound liberal arts education. All undergraduate students explore the historical development and interrelationships among the four central areas of knowledge (fine arts, humanities, science and mathematics, and social and behavioral sciences), and how each of them addresses the world, investigates, reaches conclusions, and presents findings—extending the reaches of human knowledge. The university helps students develop a range of intellectual skills that will continue to enrich and shape their lives long after their formal education has ended.
