Tufts University was founded in 1852, and today is designated
among the top-tier research institutions in the United States by the
Carnegie Foundation. The School of Arts and Sciences, located on the
Medford/Somerville campus, is the oldest and largest of Tufts' nine
schools. Enrolling more than 4,300 undergraduate students and 1,000
graduate students, the School of Arts and Sciences offers a rare
combination: a beautiful residential campus with a liberal arts
college feel, a research-rich environment with graduate and
professional schools, and easy access to an exciting metropolis.
The School of Arts and Sciences awards the degree of Bachelor of
Arts or Bachelor of Science after the completion of 34 credit hours.
Students who major in the liberal arts may select a major from more
than 30 academic
departments and programs. They may also select a second major
from the liberal arts or engineering, or pursue an Interdisciplinary
Studies major which allows students to design their own majors.
Minor certificates and special programs are also available.
