Is Tufts a research university? What kind of research opportunities do they offer?

Hey guys! I'm curious about whether Tufts is considered a research university and if they provide significant opportunities for undergraduate research, specifically in the field of international relations. Can anyone share their knowledge or experiences? Thanks so much!

Hey! Absolutely, Tufts is considered a research university, and they definitely provide many research opportunities for undergraduate students, including those in the field of international relations. I've heard from students that the faculty are often keen to involve undergrads in their research projects.

One example in international relations is the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) at Tufts, which offers various research programs, internships, and workshops. Also, you can participate in Tufts's Summer Scholars Program, where undergraduates work side by side with faculty members on research projects for a summer.

Another option is to approach your professors directly, especially the ones teaching international relations courses. Many of them would be more than happy to involve interested and proactive students in their research, or at least point you in the right direction. It's all about reaching out and showing interest!

In short, Tufts provides ample opportunities for undergraduates to engage in research, and it's a great choice for those interested in international relations. Best of luck!
