Masters Degrees

Make your mark. Make a difference

Tufts University School of Medicine’s degree programs prepare students to make an impact in the fast-moving, rapidly changing world of health care. As a Tufts student, you’ll learn from deeply experienced faculty who are passionate about teaching. You’ll hone your skills in our modern facilities, and gain real-world experience working directly with patients in the community or around the world. It all begins at our health sciences campus in the heart of downtown Boston, a city known globally as a true leader in medical education.

  • MS in Biomedical Sciences

    A rigorous Master of Science degree for students looking to strengthen their credentials before applying to medical, dental, or other health sciences programs.
  • Physician Assistant

    The Tufts PA program provides students with the skills and training they need to work in a range of clinical settings, and to make an impact in a fast-growing segment of health care.
  • Public Health Programs

    Tufts School of Medicine is home to world-class public health programs. Our programs in Public Health; Health Communication; and Pain Research, Education, and Policy combine academic rigor with practical training, and can be tailored to focus on a specific area of study
  • Dual Masters programs

    The School of Medicine provides the flexibility for our students to deepen their knowledge by earning a second degree in parallel with their MD.

One of the things I’ve been really proud of is how we’ve expanded public health at Tufts. Unlike many schools, public health here is part of the medical school, not a separate entity. I think there’s a real advantage because what we’re trying to teach medical students is that public health should be part of what they do in their practice of medicine. We want public health to be part of medicine, and we embody that at Tufts.
