About Tufts University
Tufts University was founded in 1852. In the College of Liberal Arts, students have the opportunity to study in one or more of over 60 majors and minors spanning every discipline from Biopsychology to Peace & Justice Studies to Drama. For students who wish to combine several different disciplines into one distinctive major, they may elect to design a customized major under the Plan of Study program. After the completion of 34 courses, Liberal Arts students are awarded either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree within their area(s) of concentration. The average class size is 20 students, while 70% of the courses offered have 21 or fewer students; 83% have fewer than 30 students. Fewer than 2% have more than 100 students.
All Tufts students are expected to complete two freshman writing courses and study at least one foreign language/foreign culture during their time at Tufts. In addition, students take one semester-long course in World Civilizations. These courses are intentionally included in the Liberal Arts curriculum to offer students a global perspective and deepen their understanding of their role as citizens of the world. In addition to the six-course requirement in foreign language/foreign culture, Liberal Arts students must fulfill a set of distribution requirements before being awarded a diploma.
The School of Engineering offers ABET accredited Bachelor of Science degrees in six areas: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The school also offers additional degree options, including Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Engineering Psychology, Architectural Studies, Manufacturing Engineering, and Engineering Physics. In addition, there are over 20 minor options for students to choose from.
Tufts has nearly 200 university-recognized student activity groups. And the Tufts Athletics Department sponsors 28 sports teams and a number of club sports that are open to athletes of all skill levels. Tufts hosts a very active Ultimate Frisbee team in addition to a number of other seasonal club sports, including rugby, dodgeball, fencing, equestrian and cycling.

Cousens Gym features a full range of cardiovascular equipment, an Olympic weight room, stretching mats, a six-lane swimming pool, squash courts, an erg room, basketball and volleyball courts, and men's and women's locker rooms.
The hub of arts at Tufts is the Aidekman Arts Center, which is home to an enormous exhibition space, a unique 220-seat round theater, a 600-seat multi-use auditorium, two dance studios and dozens of private music rooms, rehearsal spaces and classrooms. Tufts students enjoy free admission to dozens of art exhibitions, drama and dance performances, concerts, comedy shows, film screenings and cultural talks.
