Tufts University Reviews

8 reviews
Tufts is a great university for anyone who is eager to develop their professional and academic careers in a small-mid sized campus space. Situated in the midst of other universities, Tufts offers students the opportunity to branch outside of campus and connect with others in the Boston area. I especially love that Tufts has a lot of resources for students, yet the atmosphere and campus culture is not unfriendly or highly competitive. Professors and staff are highly available and genuinely strive for student success.

As a graduate student in Tufts University's Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning Department, I am enrolled in the post masters Certificate in Advanced Graduate Studies specializing in Urban Justice and Sustainability. I am able to pursue this program at Tufts in the Boston area even though I am a practicing planner residing and working in Roswell, NM. The faculty in this program are exceptional. The student colleagues are also working professionals with planning and other backgrounds such as law and education. I love this program because we are exposed to literature and ideas from many different fields. The assignments make us think as we attempt to articulate our ideas on a variety of community based social justice and sustainability issues and policies.
You can't go wrong with the knowledgeable professors at Tufts. Unlike other universities, professors here don't seem pressured to leave class right away to tend to their own research. Instead, they welcome students in and invite them into the process. I feel so happy with my decision to attend Tufts.
