The Public Health programs at Tufts recognize the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our prospective and admitted students. We have extended the deadline to apply to the on-campus MPH program to July 15 and are working with admitted students who need additional time to consider their offer. Please reach out with any questions you may have about your application process and summer and fall 2020 enrollment.

Make A Difference – Locally and Around the Globe

Tufts public health programs are designed to put education into action. As a Tufts student, you’ll learn in small classes taught by deeply experienced faculty from a range of different disciplines. That means constant opportunities to engage, share new ideas, and think critically about important public health issues. You’ll apply what you learn in the classroom through real-world projects and experiences and will have the opportunity to complete this field work locally or internationally. You’ll graduate with academic skills, practical experience, and professional connections that prepare you to succeed as a public health practitioner.
