Graduate Programs in the Schools of Arts and Sciences and of Engineering 

Graduate programs at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering combine the atmosphere of a liberal arts college with the state-of-the-art technological resources of a research institution. World-class researchers, personal mentoring, collaborative laboratory facilities, and industry partnerships equip Tufts students with the skills to excel in their chosen specialties and pursue their careers with passion and commitment.

We offer more than 60 doctoral and master’s degrees across the arts and sciences and engineering, including a number of interdisciplinary degrees and partnerships with other universities. Our certificate programs provide flexibility and an opportunity to expand your skills and career opportunities.

Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences brings to bear all the resources of Tufts University—a vibrant research institution with a rigorous intellectual culture. We offer more than 22 doctoral programs and 30 master’s degree programs – from Art History to Physics – and opportunities to teach and mentor some of the brightest undergraduates in the country.

Our faculty members are committed to your success and offer complete professional preparation. Through coursework, mentoring, publishing, fieldwork, and independent research, our graduate students enter their careers positioned to apply what they've learned.

School of Engineering

Tufts' engineering programs challenge the traditional boundaries of academic disciplines, research, and the roles of engineers in our increasingly interconnected global community. Every day, Tufts researchers are developing new tools to improve medical diagnosis and treatment; novel materials for a greener future; smarter, more powerful computers; and innovative ways to educate the engineers of tomorrow.

Master's and doctoral programs in six academic departments, as well as the M.S. in Engineering Management offered through Tufts Gordon Institute, give engineering students the right mix of specialization and interdisciplinary exploration.
