Overview

Founded in 1852, Tufts University is recognized among the premier universities in the United States, known for its rigorous and innovative research and educational programs. Tufts enjoys a global reputation for academic excellence and for the preparation of students as leaders in a wide range of professions. The Carnegie Foundation has recognized Tufts as an “R1” research university with “very high research activity” based on the breadth of basic and clinical research conducted in its eight schools.  Tufts has extensive and highly regarded liberal arts, sciences and engineering programs that draw outstanding students from around the world with the highest academic achievement and standing. More than 98 percent of enrolling students expect to pursue graduate or professional study after completion of a bachelor’s degree. All of Tufts’ schools have a strong international component. Approximately 50 percent of all undergraduates attending Tufts pursue coursework outside the United States to add a strong international dimension to their field of study. Tufts believes that teaching and research are intimately related, and students are encouraged to take part in independent research and scholarship. Above all, Tufts emphasizes that learning and research should be in the service of society, and civic engagement, spearheaded by the Tisch College of Civic Life, is part of almost every aspect and endeavor at the University.
