The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy


Here, we don't just study global affairs, we shape them.

The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University was founded 90 years ago this year.  Since then, Fletcher has innovated the study and practice of international affairs, leading at the intersections of the most complex global challenges, in the context of an ever-evolving world. In a global environment that is hotter, flatter, faster, increasingly unequal, and increasingly uncertain, the world needs Fletcher now more than ever.

What distinguishes the Fletcher Experience?

  • A faculty of globally-sought after experts and practitioners who invest personally in your academic journey
  • A world-class, forward-looking and interdisciplinary approach to the teaching and study of global affairs
  • An exceptionally diverse student body, who enrich and inform the experience inside and outside the classroom
  • A category-of-one, lifelong global alumni community of "Fletcherites" that pride themselves in their unique bond to each other
