Internships, Work Study & Jobs

Student Internships

Internships are a great way to get real-world experience in your field while still at Tufts. Juniors and seniors–and in a few cases, sophomores–can earn academic credit in some departments or through the Experimental College at Tufts.

Internships are an integral part of programs such as art, child development, political science, psychology, and sociology, which have integrated internships directly into the requirements to fulfill a major. Others such as community health, mass communication and media studies, and peace and justice studies either require or strongly encourage the inclusion of an internship in their undergraduate program.

Work Study and Student Jobs

Looking for extra cash or experience? Work study and student employment opportunities on campus are great ways to earn and learn.

The federal Work-Study Program was developed to allow students who are eligible for financial aid to earn money to meet out-of-pocket expenses. 

Student jobs are available to all students regardless of financial aid status. The student employment site, JobX, lists all currently available positions.
