Water Professionals with Global Impact
Our students are equipped to face global water challenges through an intensive year of study. Upon admission, students select one of four program tracks, directing their secondary coursework and summer practicum.
Through the SWM curriculum of four core classes, four track-specific classes, a seminar, and a summer practicum, students develop the skills, expertise, and experience needed to address the challenges and opportunities of sustainable water management.
The SWM degree is supported by departments from across Tufts University and includes faculty from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds.
SWM students come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, ranging from environmental science to air pollution to law.
