About Fletcher

Commit to a lifetime of global impact

For more than 85 years, The Fletcher School at Tufts University has worked to educate and prepare individuals for positions of national and international leadership and influence. Through a deep and multifaceted understanding of the world’s most pressing challenges, and with the guiding principles of mutual benefit, security, and justice, our community endeavors to maintain the stability and prosperity of the complex and increasingly global society of the 21st century.

Shaping the future, together

Students, faculty, and graduates of Fletcher work to further a legacy of enacting lasting and meaningful change in the world. They engage with government, business, and international organizations with a global perspective and in pursuit of a more just and equitable tomorrow.

Specialized skills for an ever-changing world

Fletcher’s programs and curricula are curated and taught by international relations practitioners with lifetimes of experience — not only in the classroom, but in the field. A highly interdisciplinary graduate education informed by on-the-ground insight and bolstered by a wide array of experiential opportunities provides Fletcher students with the tools and perspectives they need to make a difference in even the most turbulent global climate.

An investment in your potential

A career in the international arena and in service of the greater good is no small undertaking — and neither is a Fletcher education. But those prepared to roll up their sleeves and devote themselves to a rigorous and immersive experience soon find that a world-class, skills-based education has benefits that extend far beyond a graduate degree; it opens doors to new opportunities for lasting global impact across the full lifespan of exceptionally meaningful careers.
