MBS Thesis Requirement

The Tufts MBS program is a full-time experience that includes a thesis. Minimally, it can be completed in one year, but may be extended. In this regard, we have also made provisions for those candidates who wish to continue their studies leading to the MPH degree or MBA degree.

A literature or laboratory-based thesis, which is the capstone of our program, must be completed successfully to obtain the MS degree.
