The Tufts Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) offers more than 40 formal doctoral and master's degree programs in a wide variety of arts and sciences disciplines, from art history, education, occupational therapy, and public policy to high-energy physics and biology. The GSAS also offers combined-degree and joint-degree programs that allow students to combine into a single degree the study programs of two separate but interrelated degree programs.
Welcome to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and thank you
for your interest in our advanced degree and certificate programs.
The Graduate School brings to bear all the resources of Tufts University—a vibrant research institution with a rigorous intellectual culture. Here, students are encouraged to push the boundaries of their disciplines in collaborative research projects that cross departments and disciplines.
Teaching and mentoring are at the heart of the graduate school experience. We are committed to every facet of our students' success and offer complete professional preparation. Through coursework, mentoring and advising, publishing, fieldwork and independent research, our graduate students enter the job market positioned to apply what they've learned, having already experienced some success in their respective fields.
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is located just outside of Boston, a vibrant and intellectual city that offers opportunities for research and a rich cultural life. On campus, students share resources with graduate students from the School of Engineering, as well as our other professional students and Tufts undergraduates.
We invite you to learn more about our graduate and postdoctoral programs, and encourage you to visit our campus and to talk with our faculty and students.
