About

The university is organized into ten schools, including two undergraduate programs and eight graduate divisions, on four campuses in Massachusetts and the French Alps. The university emphasizes active citizenship and public service in all of its disciplines and is known for its internationalism and study abroad programs. Among its schools is the United States' oldest graduate school of international relations, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Tufts is a student-centered research university dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge. We are committed to providing transformational experiences for students and faculty in an inclusive and collaborative environment where creative scholars generate bold ideas, innovate in the face of complex challenges and distinguish themselves as active citizens of the world.

Research at Tufts is all about breaking down wallsóbetween fields, between faculty and students, between what is and what could be.

Innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration are the foundations of discovery at Tufts, from advances in nutrition research and telecommunications to more recent explorations into soft-bodied robots, water on Mars and the criminal justice system. Tufts' commitment to active citizenship is also matched by faculty and student research into the area, including the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) and the Tufts Community Research Center.
