Occupational Therapy Doctoral (OTD) student Dan Houlihan, MS, OTR/L, understands the calming effect being under the sea can have. After starting in the Tufts OTD program in fall 2014, he went in search of an opportunity to combine his love of diving with his desire to help combat veterans be successful in returning to civilian communities.
Tufts OT emphasizes clinical reasoning, a dynamic process of inquiry in action. In ongoing clinical reasoning seminars, Tufts faculty and students examine the process involved and the many factors considered when making evaluation, intervention and service delivery decisions with clients.
Certified and licensed (OTR/L) occupational therapy practitioners work in:
Tufts Department of Occupational Therapy is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).
English Ph.D. candidate Emma Schneider uses literature to shape the field of environmental humanities. She is the first environmental literature scholar to be chosen as a Switzer Fellow for driving positive environmental change.
As a student in the English Ph.D. program, you will find a collaborative environment between faculty and students that is both rigorous and supportive. Our collective expertise covers a wide range of historical periods, authors, literary and aesthetic movements, and critical discourses.
Economics M.S. candidate Kate Hausdorff came to Tufts with a background in political science and sociology, as well as a passion for the developing world. At Tufts, she combines these skills while working with Professor Kelsey Jack researching the impact of food and cash loans in Zambia.
There are many career opportunities reflecting the flexibility of a Tufts advanced economics degree. Roughly one-third of our graduates use the economics degree to enhance their math and economic skills before applying to Ph.D. programs. The other two-thirds of our graduates get jobs in the public or private sector.
For most graduate students, simply being a student is a full-time job. For Jonathan Diaz, M.A. 2016, it’s been a launch pad to opportunity and a successful career. As a student in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning (UEP), his home department has supported every step.
Last year alone, first-year M.A. students in UEP examined community land trusts, developed a community plan for a food hub, examined urban heat island mitigation, and evaluated public transportation on campus as part of the UEP Field Projects course.
There's no shortage of jobs for Ph.D.s in electrical engineering. Recent Tufts grads have been swooped up by some of the biggest names in industry.
