Graduate & Professional


As a graduate or professional student at Tufts, you are a member of a close-knit, supportive and collegial family of students and faculty, spanning across three unique campus communities.

At its core, the Tufts experience focuses on the value of teaching and mentoring students in their research endeavors, working together to ensure our students' success.
