ACADEMIC INFORMATION

All courses on the Tufts in London & Oxford programs will be awarded Tufts credit in the corresponding department (or as “All-College” credit if there is no corresponding department at Tufts). However, it is up to each department to decide which courses will count and how they will count toward the major. You should consult with your major department regarding specific courses you wish to fulfill major requirements.  For more information, and advice for Engineering and SMFA, please see Tufts’ Study Abroad pages.
