The School of Arts and Sciences is committed to intellectual
and artistic engagement through a liberal arts tradition that
prepares all of our students for a lifetime of learning.
Tufts fosters a culture of academic rigor and inspired scholarship
in a range of fields, from life sciences to literature. Our students
are problem solvers and entrepreneurs, figuring out solutions for
the challenges ahead.
The majority of courses are taught by full-time professors, most of
whom hold a Ph.D. and many of whom are practicing professionals in
their fields. The university strives to foster personal
relationships between students and faculty, encouraging individual
attention in both the classroom and research settings.
