Academics

Great teaching, unique and unbelievably numerous courses, research opportunities and students who are the best and brightest are at the core of the Tulane experience.
 
Ok, we know every university says this, but here’s why Tulane is special.
 
We’ve got the credentials – we’re one of the nation’s leading research institutions; we’ve been a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU) for nearly 60 years. Our faculty are the cream of the crop, the best of the best, and they’re drawn here because they want to be surrounded by other talented and driven scholars.

So what else makes us different? You! Maybe you will do a double, triple or quadruple major.  Maybe you will study abroad.  Maybe you will invent something to make life better.
 
What you will definitely do is take advantage of the way Tulane has broken down the silos between schools so it is easy for you to take a creative, designed-just-for-you curriculum.
