Index - Tufts OpenCourseWare

A great university constantly expands its reach, working across traditional boundaries to grasp and meet the global community's most critical needs. This begins with sharing knowledge among colleagues, between departments, among schools and finally across countries and continents. Tufts OpenCourseWare is part of a new educational movement initiated by MIT that provides free access to course content for everyone online. Tufts' course offerings demonstrate the University's strength in the life sciences in addition to its multidisciplinary approach, international perspective and underlying ethic of service to its local, national and international communities.
