Tufts Civic Semester 

Tisch College and Tufts University offer incoming students the opportunity to participate in the Tufts Civic Semester, a transformational first-semester program that combines academic and experiential learning with a focus on community engagement and social and environmental justice. Based in either Urubamba, Peru or the Southwestern United States, participants join a small cohort of 10-12 peers to create a living and learning community which engages deeply with important social issues through Tufts coursework and by supporting and learning from local community organizations.

Program costs are covered by tuition and fees and applicants to the program can utilize their Tufts financial aid package.
