Global Security

Since the founding of the Fletcher School in 1933, Tufts has been at the vanguard of educating insightful leaders fearless in the face of global conflict. Today it contributes to a university-wide conviction that education, scholarship, and outreach are foundations of global peace and stability.

  • The Fletcher School was the first U.S. school of diplomacy and international relations and has been ranked among the top five in the world for international relations by the Foreign Policy Group.
