Welcome message from program director

The major and the minor programs in Education are relatively new at Tufts. Although there have been courses for undergraduates for decades, having the opportunity to major or minor in Education was not possible until recently. Indeed, it was the activism of Tufts undergraduates who brought about these programs.

As a result, the Education Department has taken student interest and enthusiasm for our program as an important guideline in crafting our major and minor. As you will see when you look at the courses themselves, the Education Major, which is a co-major and can be taken in conjunction with a variety of other majors, will allow undergraduates to craft a course of study, in conjunction with their advisors, that focuses on their interests.

Please read on about the major and minor requirements and electives and about the faculty who are eager to serve as advisors . If you have any questions, comments, or criticisms, please feel free to send a note to me. That will open the door to further conversations. My email is steven.cohen@tufts.edu.

Thanks for your interest in the Department of Education.

Steve Cohen
Director, Undergraduate Education
