Research at Tufts is all about breaking down walls—between fields,
between faculty and students, between what is and what could be.
Innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration are the foundations
of discovery at Tufts.
The Carnegie Foundation ranks Tufts as an institution with "very
high research activity"—its highest classification for
degree-granting colleges and universities—but the university's
commitment to research is about more than prestige. It's about the
community coming together around ideas in creative and compelling
ways, pushing boundaries and asking the questions that will take our
knowledge to the next level.
Undergraduates are an active and vital component of the research
community at Tufts. There are many opportunities for undergraduate
students to collaborate with faculty, graduate students and
postdoctoral researchers on projects in all disciplines. In
addition, there are several resources available for Tufts students
looking for research opportunities outside the university or after
they complete their degree.
