Transfer of Credit

You may use courses taken at other institutions, semesters abroad, and pre-matriculation credits to complete coursework and requirements. To ensure that you receive credit for these courses on your Tufts transcript, please review the university guidelines for transfer of credit.

Undergraduate Students

To count towards the CSHD major requirements, a course must (1) have children or adolescents as its primary focus OR (2) have substantial overlap with a course already offered by the CSHD Department (e.g., a course in socio-emotional development offered at another university.). Furthermore, before taking, for credit, an internship (fieldwork) abroad, you must first inform Dr. Scarlett ( and under his supervision, develop a paper (minimum eight pages) on some issue or subject related the internship (e.g., cultural differences between Danish and American early childhood education).
