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.

Thanks for your interest in the Department of Education.
Director, Undergraduate Education
