Sarah Bray isn’t an average graduate student teaching assistant, but a Ph.D. candidate who is co-teaching a course with Professor James Adler as part of the Graduate Institute for Teaching (GIFT), a program designed to prepare doctoral students for an academic career in teaching at the university level.
Master's recipient Carolyn Talmadge is a Geographical Information Specialist who works to collect, collate, and display large amounts of data. Carolyn, who was always interested in environmental science, started her career by getting her feet wet in the Environmental Management certificate program.
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.
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.
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.
