Friedman School of Nutrition

Tufts’ Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy offers a wide variety of Master’s, PhD, and combined degree programs. Students can learn about the science of nutrition in the Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition program; create innovative solutions to humanitarian challenges in the Master of Arts in Humanitarian Assistance program; or pursue a combined Master of Arts in International Nutrition and Law and Diplomacy. For more information and a full list of Friedman’s many programs, see the website.

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library is home to far more than just books and journals, although it does have plenty of those. Students can attend computational workshops; work on sophisticated software in the computer labs; get a drink and a snack from the Food4Thought Cafe; and check out anatomical models. The Library also holds fun holiday-themed and stress-relieving events, from Halloween pumpkin making to therapy dogs during exam times.

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library offers a vast array of clinical and computational resources. Whether you want to attend a workshop on statistical analysis, access a journal article with exciting new findings, or check out an anatomical model of a brain, the library – including school-specific liaisons for each of the Health Sciences schools – can help you out.

The Jaharis Building houses biomedical science labs, classrooms, the Behrakis Auditorium, and the Jaharis Cafe. Step outside and you’ll find yourself in the Jaharis Courtyard, a peaceful green space in the heart of the Boston Health Sciences Campus.

Jaharis Cafe and Courtyard is a great place to take a break from class or lab work, grab a snack, and (weather permitting) enjoy the outdoors. The space is also host to student-run events, graduation receptions, alumni reunions, and other programming. The cafe is home to composting facilities, and the future site of healthy, sustainable cuisine by Tufts Food Lab.

Jaharis 508 serves many functions. During orientation, lab safety training and international student orientation take place here. Program seminars, classes, and lab meetings are held in the room. And if it’s not being used for one of those purposes, it can be a quiet study space.

Tufts’ Health Sciences Campus is located in the heart of Boston’s historical Chinatown neighborhood. The SoWa neighborhood, known for the SoWa open market, lies to the south, while a short walk north will get you to Boston Common.
