Tufts University

Founded in 1852, Tufts University is a private research university located in Medford/Somerville, near Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. With over 9,600 students, 5,150 of whom are undergraduate, the University emphasizes active citizenship and public service in all of its disciplines, and is well known for its internationalism and study abroad programs. Among its ten undergraduate and graduate schools, which are located on four campuses in Massachusetts and in France, is the United States’ oldest graduate school of international relations, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Among the many programs and organizations available at Tufts, the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL), through which the Oslo Scholars Program is sponsored, stands out as a cross-school program that emphasizes rigorous academic preparation and experimental learning. Students learn through intensive engagement in classes, global research, internships, workshops, simulations and international symposia – all involving national and international leaders from the public and private sectors. Among its more than 16 programs are EPIIC, Inquiry, the China Cross-Cultural Leadership Program, and EXPOSURE, and it offers many opportunities for global research and internships.
