Graduate Programs

With small classes and a strong sense of community, our public health and health-related professional degree programs foster vigorous debate and robust interactions among students. Our partners in education, service, and research include faculty at all the schools of Tufts, who bring experience from fields as diverse as engineering, nutrition, law, health care, medicine, behavioral sciences, occupational health, and business.

Our students are deeply interested in a complex, population-based approach to health. Through relationships with institutions around the globe, students work in local communities and rural settings worldwide, experiencing firsthand the health challenges many people face every day. Scores of practicing professionals take active roles as field preceptors, clinical affiliates, thesis mentors, and adjunct professors. All of them give students the individualized attention they need to put their degrees to work.
