Summer Session at Tufts

Q: Do you need to fulfill a requirement…or want to explore an academic passion for which you can’t find time during the academic year?

A: Tufts Summer Session is the answer! With more than 170+ courses—in subjects ranging from Computer Science to Political Science, from Artificial Intelligence to Studio Art, from Organic Chemistry to Nutrition—Tufts Summer Session has just the right offerings for you. 

Our offerings include courses from:

  • The School of Arts and Sciences
  • The School of Engineering
  • The School of the Museum of Fine Arts (including both courses and intensives/workshops)
  • The Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy

Do you already have a job or internship? Most summer courses are offered in the evening or online, allowing you to earn credit while honoring other commitments (and still enjoying summer, too!). Courses are affordable with discounted tuition and on-campus housing.

To learn more about all these options, please visit the Tufts Summer Session website. But don’t delay: online registration ends on May 23 for Session 1 courses (walk-in registration options are available later).

Watch "Day By Day"

Student Accessibility Services and Tufts' Department of Film and Media Studies recently partnered with two student filmmakers, Ben Hoskings and Ray Bernoff, to produce "Day By Day," a short documentary about six Tufts students' experiences as artists living with disabilities. "Day By Day" premiered with great success in mid April, and the film will be shown at two national conferences later this summer. Congratulations to Ben and Ray, who have also entered "Day By Day" in a national contest for filmmakers with disabilities.
