Tufts Graduate Students

Tufts Summer Session credits can be put to work right away in your degree program at Tufts. Pace yourself on the road to commencement by selecting courses that are foundation, distribution, or concentration options. With over 175 Summer Session courses offered during the day and evening it's easy to balance class with work, an internship, or whatever else you have going on this summer.

It's what you expect from Tufts...and more!

Tufts Summer Session offers the same great instruction you expect at Tufts. Instructors are familiar to you, and since classes tend to be small, you'll have a more comprehensive and meaningful learning experience.

Have your summer and Tufts, too!

We know you are busy this summer. Internships, jobs, fun in the sun. We can work with your busy schedule. With many courses meeting in the evening, not to mention online courses, you have many options to have your summer and Tufts, too.

Can't stay in Boston this summer?

No worries! Take Tufts home with you, or to work, or around the world. With summer online courses, you have more options to make progress in your program while you are away from campus. With foreign language, mathematics, social science, and natural science options, you can use summer online courses to meet program requirements.
