Tufts University


The heart of a Tufts undergraduate education is the exploration of both our consciousness and our society. Tufts fosters a culture of academic rigor and inspired scholarship in a range of fields, from life sciences to literature. Our students are problem solvers and entrepreneurs, figuring out solutions for the challenges ahead.

The majority of courses are taught by full-time professors, most of whom hold a Ph.D. and many of whom are practicing professionals in their fields. The university strives to foster personal relationships between students and faculty, encouraging individual attention in both the classroom and research settings.
