The mission of the Tufts Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is to offer
graduate programs that feature stimulating academic opportunities, innovative
research environments, and close mentoring from a world-class faculty. We
emphasize the importance of communication, leadership, and teamwork skills.
In addition to promoting academic and research diversity in our graduate
programs, our mission is also to achieve cultural diversity by developing an
academic and social environment that welcomes underrepresented groups in all
of our programs. The diversity of the backgrounds and experiences of our graduate
students deeply enrich our community and we are strongly committed to having a
diverse and active graduate student body.
Arts and Sciences graduate students are an integral part of Tufts. They come
here to study, investigate, grow intellectually, perform research, conceive new
ideas, and develop insights in a variety of areas of study. They are a vibrant
component of our campus and we welcome and encourage opportunities to interact
with them and listen to their thoughts and ideas.
There are a number of organizations and offices at Tufts that focus on issues
of diversity. Graduate students interested in learning more about these offerings
