Good program for current Engineers. Be careful about expanding too quickly.
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

The school/program was very intensive but prepared me well for professional school. The program helps you get into healthcare related programs.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

A wonderful liberal arts school just north of Boston. Very prestigious and vigorous school academically, loved the academic experience. It was in a great location close enough to the city yet still felt like a college community. Again, loved the experience but don't love the debt!

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2018

There is a reason that Tufts has such a stellar reputation. From small classes to phenomenal professors, everything about my degree has so far been basically great. The degree is very expensive, but the level of training and mentorship makes it completely worth it.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Tufts University is an excellent institution dedicated to student success, both while students are pursuing their degrees and after graduation. I studied conservation medicine, a relatively new degree offered by the veterinary school at Tufts. The conservation medicine master's degree allowed us, students, freedom to pursue topics of interest while providing a framework to direct us toward success. I gained invaluable networking resources and was well-prepared to enter the field of veterinary medicine, in which I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree. With the ever growing number of challenges facing environmental resources, ecosystem health, and wildlife, I feel well prepared to help contribute to the efforts being made in mitigating the obstacles facing optimal human, animal, and environmental health. I am honored to have studied at such a highly regarded and student-centric university as Tufts and hope to be considered for this scholarship to help cover the large academic expenses associated with obtaining degrees in higher education.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

Tufts is a great school to go to for both undergraduate and graduate experiences. The main campus is located in a suburb just outside of Boston, and it's extremely welcoming. You are close enough to see the Boston Skyline, and going downtown just takes a 20 minute jump on the Red Line, but you're far away enough that it feels like you're living in the college world as well so you can immerse yourself in your own activities and interests.

Nice small school near Boston. Great location and good academics.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2013

The Animals and Public Policy program through Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is a phenomenal choice for students wishing to learn more about the legislation impacting non-human animals in the United States and worldwide. The curriculum broadly covers wild, farm, and companion animal policy, and provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in these areas by means of internships and research projects. Courses are taught by staff from the veterinary school, with an abundance of guest speakers from organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Humane Society of the United States. While all students are required to take several core courses, such as qualitative research and quantitative methods, multiple elective courses are also available which allow for pursuit of individual interests. I would highly recommend this graduate program to anyone interested in gaining an enhanced perspective on animals and the roles they play in human society; for being such a unique program within the United States, the benefits and applications of this field are truly global.
