Study Abroad

There are a wide range of academic, personal, and professional benefits to be gained through studying abroad. Many students find it is a truly transformative skill-building experience. Tufts University has been offering study abroad programs to undergraduate students for five decades. You may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts providers. Get started with "Study Abroad First Steps"!

Each year, Tufts University hosts a celebration honoring the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year's symposium will open with a performance by the Tufts Black Theater Troupe. Dr. Kerri Greenidge, Co-Director of the Tufts African American Freedom Trail Project, will then place our current moment in historical context. Next, a conversation with Boston-based community organizers and activists will discuss how this contemporary moment is shaping their work at the local and national levels. Panelists include Chris Cato of YouthBuild USA, Cheryl Clyburn Crawford of MassVOTE, and recently-elected Boston City Councilor, Lydia Edwards. We will then conclude with a community dinner and keynote lecture from Tufts alumnus Emery Wright, A99. Wright is the Co-Director of Project South (https://projectsouth.org/), and he will address the importance of action in, “the fierce urgency of now.”

Sponsored by the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Chief Diversity Officer, the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences, the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, the Toupin-Bolwell Fund, the Africana Center, the Center for the Humanities at Tufts, the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, the Tisch College of Civic Life, and the University Chaplaincy.
