Tufts is composed of eight schools including professional schools in medicine, dental medicine and veterinary medicine. Tufts' Fletcher School is one of most prestigious schools for International Affairs.

Famous alumni include New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, late senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Oscar-winning actor William Hurt and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.
