Welcome to Tufts Summer Session 2022
Here at Tufts we pride ourselves on hosting a diverse group of students in our Summer Sessions I and II. Registration is now open for all programs and courses, with a variety of virtual, online and on-campus options. Whether you are a high school student looking for the rigor and excitement of what a college education could be, a Tufts undergraduate or visiting student looking to fulfill some requirements this summer, or an adult learner looking to further your career or pursue an outside interest, Tufts Summer Session 2022, has something for any student, with flexible schedules and locations including online and throughout Massachusetts.
I had the wonderful opportunity to take a public speaking course this summer through Tufts. This class was extremely engaging, despite the restrictions of online learning. We began each lesson with exercises, each student would alternate leading the class on warmups, we were given time to produce a short speech to present during class time, and had a chance to watch videos of successful speeches to emulate. Our assignments included recording a draft speech to be uploaded onto Canvas, and we gave comments and suggestions to our classmates to help them improve for the final speech. This particular course opened my eyes to the beauty of speaking in public and the communication skills needed to interact with others. I felt the progress and improvement by the end of this program and can’t believe my development throughout those weeks.

Robert Siegelman's approach of confidence, play and experimentation is exactly what I need right now. Helping me lean into my own ideas, and also stretch my awareness both through seeing a huge variety of work and by communicating with the other students in the class. His stressing a daily practice is also life changing.

I very truly enjoyed the class that I took. The instructor was amazing. My classmates were gifted. Taking the course persuaded me to begin working on my application materials to apply to a graduate certificate in UEP

"I loved the small group exercises such as the case studies and the hands-on labs that were very informative and engaging. I also like the surgeon information meeting because it provided a lot of insight into the effort and time needed to become a successful physician."

My son goes to a variety of camps every summer, each with a different focus. This was BY FAR his favorite program. He enjoyed every minute and came home super excited and over eager to share about his day, which is not typical. Keep up the great work!
