Tufts University Graduate Reviews

2 reviews
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.
