The members of our faculty have international reputations in a broad range of subjects, and collaborations between department members and members of other departments with different research interests are common. Close interaction between faculty and students is the norm.

Last, but not least, Tufts and its close proximity to Boston offers incredible opportunities for cultural, gastronomical, and extra-curricular activities.... [-]

The M.A. program in the Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning (UEP) at Tufts prepares a new generation of leaders – ‘practical visionaries’ – who will contribute to the development of inclusive and sustainable communities.

A joint degree consists of one master's degree awarded by two graduate departments when a student meets the core master's requirements of both departments. Students may pursue a joint degree with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering. A dual-degree option (M.A./M.S.) is also offered by the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and UEP.

Students must be accepted into both departments in order to enter the joint degree program in UEP/Engineering Joint/Dual Degree. To facilitate the admissions process, however, a single application can be submitted on the Tufts' online application system by choosing the "UEP/Engineering Joint/Dual Degree" program. The application will then be reviewed concurrently by each department according to its own review criteria. The candidate's admission to UEP is not affected by the decision of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.... [-]
