About Tufts.

The Tufts CS department has grown significantly in the past decade in faculty, student size, and research funding. The department recently moved into the brand-new Joyce Cummings Center, which is also the home of Math, Economics, the Data Intensive Studies Center, and the Derby Entrepreneurship Center. Tufts offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of an R1 research university. We support and encourage a culture of interdisciplinary research, and there are numerous such opportunities within the university. Located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, faculty members on the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration outside of Tufts as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the area.
