From its earliest inception, the Experimental College has emphasized creative collaboration between students and
faculty across disciplines to shape new courses and programs.
Students interested in media production have opportunities to get involved in TUTV, the campus television station which is overseen by the ExCollege. Or they may delve into filmmaking through TuftsFilmWorks, an initiative that introduces students to filmmaking and offers advanced, independent work in film, multimedia, and photography. TuftsFilmWorks is now integrated into the new Film and Media Studies department, which offers several courses each semester through the ExCollege.
In addition, the ExCollege teams with the Institute for Global Leadership to present the multidisciplinary EPIIC: The Future of Europe, and offers courses in conjunction with Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, and the Writing Fellows Program. Other programs with which ExCollege collaborates include the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies.
The ExCollege also organizes a range of programs, forums, independent study groups, speakers, and workshops which engage students and faculty with current issues both on campus and around the world. We are always open to new partnerships that will enrich the Tufts community.
