Troy University traces its origin to the Troy State Normal School which was established on 26 February 1887, by an Act of the Alabama Legislature. Recognizing the growth of the school's programs, the State Board of Education in 1929 changed the name of the School to Troy State Teachers College, and in 1931, the College granted its first baccalaureate degree. Continued growth in the College's programs prompted the Alabama legislature in 1957 to change the name to Troy State College, and in the same year, the State Board of Education authorized the master's degree program. On 14 December 1967, Troy State College was officially renamed Troy State University. Troy University is a public institution comprised of a network of campuses throughout Alabama and worldwide.
