Online & Blended Course List

Summer 2018

Online & Blended courses are available to both Tufts and visiting students. Most courses are offered 100% online, with minimal or no on-campus requirements. Note, though, that some courses do require synchronous sessions, which is noted in the course description.

Online learning is a fantastic way to take a course and to experience a learning format that you might really enjoy. Courses are open 24x7 (and so is tech support!), so there are ample opportunities to interact and participate with your teacher and classmates.

Online learning is not for everyone though. Be sure you have the time, self-motivation, and discipline required to learn and keep up in this format. Online courses at Tufts Summer Session are subject to the same policies and procedures as summer face-to-face courses. Read more about online course policies.

Some online courses may have proctored midterm and final exams. For courses that have this requirement: If you are within 50 miles of Tufts University, you will be required to come to Medford, MA for your exam. If you are more than 50 miles away from Tufts, you may be responsible for finding your own proctor or taking your exam through a remote proctoring service. Read more about proctored exam policies for online courses.
