Working in Arts and Sciences

To work in the School of Arts and Sciences is to be a member of a diverse and vibrant intellectual community committed to making a positive impact on the world. You work with academically-talented and energetic students, high impact scholars and researchers, dedicated and inspiring teachers, and talented and creative staff members.

The School is located on the Medford/Somerville Campus, which is alive with exhibitions, speakers, concerts, and performances. The campus is located less than one mile from Davis Square, an active urban center with cafés, shops, and restaurants, served by the "T", Boston's public transit system. A short subway ride brings you to the attractions and neighborhoods of Cambridge and Boston.

Tufts Fact

In 1893, Henrietta Noble Brown became the first woman to receive a baccalaureate degree from Tufts. She transferred from Boston University to be part of the first class of women students that matriculated in 1892. Brown went on to become a triple Jumbo—earning masters degrees in both chemistry and history at Tufts. All three of her children attended the University, as well as two of her grandchildren.
