Through the creation and study of the arts, Tufts students uncover what makes us human and find the freedom and flexibility to bring their personal vision to life. On screen, stage, and canvas, they express their unique visions and breathe new life into classic works. Together, students and faculty explore works past and present through analysis and insight, providing a springboard for future creativity. All these activities converge to produce a multifaceted artistic environment at Tufts where creativity and individuality are expressed in all forms.
Visual arts students benefit from the resources of a world-class research university and proximity to museums and cultural institutions, engaging with thought-provoking material that inspires their own endeavors.
