Always Ahead of Its Time. For more than half a century now, the ExCollege has been challenging convention, setting trends, and preparing students for the world of tomorrow.
Tufts juniors and seniors have designed eighteen advising courses for first-year students on topics ranging from popular TV shows, to the psychology of dogs, to cybersecurity.
With only two weeks to reorganize their courses, our visiting lecturers and peer teachers created a new virtual dynamic, maintained a sense of community among the class, and supported students during an uncertain time.
The ExCollege is a department at Tufts University that offers innovative undergraduate elective courses. We hire Visiting Lecturers with a range of perspectives and professional experience to teach interdisciplinary and interactive courses.
