Majors at Tufts: Political Science; Minor in Africa and the New World
Current Job: Senior Analyst and Program Manager in the Office of the Secretary of Defense
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? There are way too many amazing memories for me to pick just one. Many of the best friends I have today, the people who still mentor, encourage and love me, come from Tufts, and that feels most important. But a great memory was my first few days at Tufts, which were actually out in the New Hampshire White Mountains. I came a week early freshman year to participate in the Tufts Wilderness Orientation, and was paired with two awesome juniors and a set of excited freshman. We packed our bags and headed to the mountains. While hiking the trails we talked about where we came from and where we wanted to go, and received great insights from the juniors about classes to take and favorite professors. When we started orientation we had already built a great cohort, which allowed us to go out and meet people with more confidence and ease. That’s a perfect example of Tufts – you keep meeting new and interesting people, expanding your world view, and feeling more confident with the world as you enter it. And you keep those initial friends while your support network continues to grow. Good luck, class of 2021! You’re in for an amazing experience.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? And why did you pick the major that you did? Definitely American Politics with Dean Glaser and International Relations with Professor Mufti – they were my favorite professors and I keep in touch with them to this day. They opened my eyes to the exciting strategies behind American politics and international theories. I was hooked: political science was my path.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? And what do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? Today I work in the Pentagon trying to make the government work better. I run a team of amazing people who strategically collect and analyze data to help the Pentagon’s leaders make better choices. From the first time Dean Glaser assigned a research project that included analyzing and presenting data, I learned the best way to create political change was to first collect and study the data. Today that’s what I do, and I constantly fight against the bureaucratic and siloed culture in the Pentagon. My team is changing the way the Pentagon does business for the first time since McNamara instituted our office’s data collection in the 1960s. Hopefully the work I do with my great team will change the way the department makes decisions for the long term. I’m proud of the work my team does, and I thank Tufts for preparing me to do it.
Name: Becky Darin Goldberg
Class Year Graduated: 2015
Majors at Tufts: Community Health and American Studies
Current Job: Paralegal, Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Rackets Bureau
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? When I was a senior I had the incredible opportunity to teach an Explorations class at the Ex-College. The course was called feminism/feMENism, and through a variety of topics, such as intersectionality, gender and sex, and reproductive rights, we sought to define feminism and address why some individuals identify with the word feminist, while others do not.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? This was a tough question to answer because I had so many wonderful classes that changed the way I think about things, but the class that really changed the way I approach problems was Introduction to Community Health with Professor Jennifer Allen. If it hadn’t been for that class I may never have become a Community Health Major, nor would I have learned about the complex social, political, economic, and medical determinants of health that affect much more than just health.
Why did you pick the majors that you did? I entered Tufts thinking I was pre-med, but once I took Introduction to Epidemiology, I realized that I could impact populations, not just individuals. I chose to be a Community Health and American Studies double major because I was, and still am, very interested in women’s health and women’s rights, and when addressing these topics, one must think about all of the relevant intersected variables: race, gender, class, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, education, housing… the list goes on.
How have your majors prepared you for the work that you are doing? My majors provided me with an understanding of the public health approach, an understanding of my position and privilege when approaching the issues I feel most passionately about, and the wonderful professors I continue to call mentors.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? The Rackets Bureau at the Manhattan DA’s Office investigates and prosecutes individuals and corporations who take advantage of vulnerable people and populations. Learning the investigative and legal tools that go into these cases has been a great experience, and having a part in ensuring that the justice system operates to provide true justice to victims is something I look forward to every day.
Name: David J. Proctor
Class Year Graduated: LA'94, GS'01 (MA), GS'10 (PhD)
Majors at Tufts: Classics and History, Minor in Medieval Studies
Current Status: Senior Lecturer, Department of History; Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Classics; Core Faculty, International Relations; Core Faculty, Archaeology
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? I don't think there is any one experience that stands out, there are many. But there are four people who defined my academic career at Tufts--Lucy Der Manuelian, Steve Marrone, George Marcopoulos, and Gerald Gill. Lucy Der Manuelian exposed me to the true passion and enthusiasm a teacher can have for their subject and how contagious that enthusiasm can be to students. She also exposed me to Armenia and Byzantium for the first time, both of which would become central to my research and teaching. Steve Marrone stoked my enthusiasm for the study of medieval western Europe and was my advisor for my BA, MA, and Ph.D.. A superb advisor and excellent teacher. George Marcopoulos was my mentor for additional work on Byzantium and introduced me to studies of the Balkans, he was also a model of complete devotion to his students, both as a teacher and advisor. In that same vein was Gerald Gill, the quintessential Tufts teacher and advisor who dedicated his life to his students. They all helped forge the teacher, scholar, and advisor I am today.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? My first class at Tufts was Art and Politics in the Middle Ages with Lucy Der Manuelian. It met in the basement of 11 Talbot Avenue. That class solidified my love of the middle ages in Western Europe, but more importantly, introduced me to Byzantium and Armenia, two areas that would define much of my work as an undergraduate and graduate student. Professor Der Manuelian could also change a burnt out bulb in a slide projector faster than you could say Aghtamar.
Why did you pick the majors that you did? I loved history from elementary school on so there was little doubt I would major in history. Once I got to Tufts, my pre-major advisor, Peter Reid, encouraged me to try my hand at classical history and to see what I thought of Ancient Greek as a language, having decided I did not want to continue in French. After taking History of Ancient Greece with Steve Hirsch and Greek 1 with Joe Desmond my first semester, I was hooked on Classics as well.
How have your majors prepared you for the work that you are doing? My majors prepared me well for what I currently do, teaching courses that deal with areas that I have studied since my time as an undergraduate. Even more important however, my majors introduced me to extraordinary faculty who became my guides and role models.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? There are few things as rewarding as teaching--to help a student develop their abilities to think critically, to write clearly, and in the case of history, to see history as a living, breathing entity that is powerfully relevant in our day to day lives. History, at its core, is the story of people. Each individual has her, his, or their story, but those individual stories all weave into the fabric of the much larger story of the development of humanity. To understand the world we live in, we must seek to understand the people we share this world with and to learn their stories in order to better understand our own. When a student sees those connections, when a student feels empowered to take ownership not only of their own story, but begins to see and feel connected to the wider narrative, it is a privilege to be part of that development. Moreover, just having the opportunity to work day in and day out with students, as their teacher and advisor, is the greatest privilege I have been blessed with. When everything else in a day might seem a bit gloomy or maybe even at points futile, to enter the classroom and start interacting with my students, or to spend office hours talking about courses, or graduate programs, or roommate dilemmas, makes it all worthwhile and restores the joy to the day.
Name: Kaveh Veyssi
Class Year Graduated: 2014
Major at Tufts: Economics, Minor in Film Studies
Current Status: Executive Assistant to Executive Vice President of Production at Columbia Pictures
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? I’ll never forget the incredible experiences I had as a member of sQ! during my four years at Tufts. From performances around the country to our annual retreats, every moment I spent with the group was one to treasure. I’m so lucky to have been a part of that family and love seeing the group grow to this day.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? Aside from the various formative Ex-College film classes I took, Sarah Sobieraj’s Media and Society opened my eyes to the unbelievable impact that the media have on our culture. Professor Sobieraj’s class helped shape my goals as I began my career in the film industry; most importantly, she taught me how representation in front of and behind the camera promotes meaningful change in society by providing a platform for unheard voices.
Why did you pick the major that you did? During my freshman year, I shopped around until I landed on economics because it felt like a well-rounded major that would have practical use once I graduated. Combining it with a film studies minor proved to be a perfect marriage of two fields that interested me.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? The process of making movies constantly requires you to weigh the costs and benefits of various artistic choices. My economics major helped me understand how the opportunity cost of making certain decisions affects the final product. For example, when looking at a film’s budget, allocating more money towards cast or, let’s say, production design, completely depends on how you think you’ll benefit from that decision. Having made a few short films at Tufts, the hands-on experience also prepared me to understand the ways the development process impacts the final product.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? I have loved the idea of telling stories and entertaining people through movies for quite a while now, but as I move forward in my career, I’m excited to find subtle ways to make a change in an industry that’s transforming so rapidly. I look around me and see a new generation of filmmakers, artists, and executives who are also beginning to change the media landscape in a really meaningful way. I’m thankful for all the people at Tufts who supported me as I discovered my passion for film and look forward to the future!
Name: Kyle Aronson
Class Year Graduated: 2015
Major at Tufts: Cognitive and Brain Sciences
Current Status: Research Assistant at Albert Einstein College of Medicine
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? Working in Dr. Miczek's psychopharmacology lab. I learned valuable research techniques, how to critique research papers and analyze results, and most importantly matured by gaining a sense responsibility by working at 7am during the week (a shockingly difficult task for a college student).
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? Intellectual development of young children, taught by Dr. David Henry Feldman. This class allowed me to deconstruct the differing theories of intellectual development and more importantly was able to test the theories in my life. There was a semester long project in which we had to learn a new skill to model intellectual development and apply our experiences to the theories taught during lecture. This class greatly changed my character by forcing me to be introspective, looking back at my progress and failures to better improve myself and apply what was learned in class in a real life example.
Why did you pick the major that you did? I had been interested in psychology in high school and I felt that the cognitive and brain sciences major provided a holistic education in various aspects of neuroscience spanning from neurology, computer science, language, development, and philosophy.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? I currently work in a neurology laboratory and I feel the major tremendously prepared me to think and work in the sciences. The major created the scaffolding to conduct experiment psychology research by a myriad of hands on laboratory classes as well as the learning in the theoretical sphere. Aside from the classes, the senior year research project helped prepare us graduates of the program for the real world by design and conduct a research project on ones own.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? I feel that I am making a legitimate impact on brain research, that is helping further our understanding of memory function and radiation therapy. Additionally, I have developed leadership skills, confidence in my own abilities in the field, and the ability to collaborate and work with others in a professional environment.
Name: Charlotte Gilbert
Major: Political Science
Class Year: 2014
Current Job: Talent Coordinator at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? My most memorable experience at Tufts was my first (and only, thank god) true all nighter. A night in the library seemed daunting, but it was filled with laughs and snacks until 5 AM. As corny as it sounds, while I can't remember the paper I was writing, I can tell you what we were laughing about and exactly what we were eating. There was a sense of solidarity, none of us left until we were all done. In hindsight that was probably dumb, but at the time it was a reassuring gesture of support.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? My favorite class that I took at Tufts was probably Politics of the American South. It really opened my eyes to some of the institutionalized issues in our country, and made me question many things I had taken for granted.
Why did you pick the major that you did? I picked political science because I was always interested in different politics. I would have taken International Relations, but I did not want to take economics.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? I'm lucky that my job now requires me to use my brain. I'm constantly encouraged to watch the news and stay up to date on politics, and having majored in political science, my brain is already trained to understand the vocabulary and themes needed to maintain a discourse in current affairs.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? The best part about Last Week Tonight is its commitment to uncovering important topics that are otherwise dismissed. Being part of a team that is truly invested in making the truth funny is so important in todays world, and I realize most people can't say that about their jobs.
Name: Rashad Malik Davis
Class Year Graduated: 2013
Majors at Tufts: Anthropology and Chinese
Current Status: Illustrator and Author
What is one of the most memorable, fun, or important experiences that you have at Tufts? Hands down, my time in the a-capella group S-Factor was the most valuable and crucial to my college experience. When I was stressed, exhausted or otherwise burnt out from college life, S-Factor was a fun and warm home away from home. I now have brothers I can call on for a lifetime without question or hesitation.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? I have two. The first was a class called "Extreme Environments" taught by Professor Stephen Bailey and the other was "Indigenous People's of South America and Their Rights" taught by my former adviser and friend David Guss. Both classes expanded my understanding of the resilience (and diversity) of human existence and how we can make and find beauty in everything - including our resistance.
Why did you pick the majors that you did? I have always loved people, and I was endlessly fascinated with studying how we operate within a cultural context. Because I didn't know specifically what I wanted to do upon graduation, I also figured Anthropology was broad enough that I could apply my skills to any career I found myself in. Chinese was also a way to go into another culture and learn. I'd always been fascinated with Chinese culture, and studying the language was a beautiful glimpse in.
How have your majors prepared you for the work that you are doing? Anthropology was a lot of writing, critical writing, and empathy building. I had to understand someone else's world. In illustration and writing for myself or other clients, I have to step into someone else's shoes. I also most often get clients of diverse backgrounds, so the ability to appreciate and understand their culture's richness helps me make new connections and valuable business friendships.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? The fact that people can locate themselves in my work is the most rewarding. When little kids get excited because they see a character that looks like them, it really makes my day. And when adults can understand the depth of what I'm trying to do, it makes all of the hard work worth it.

Major at Tufts: Computer Science
Current Status: Software Engineer at Fitbit
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? Moving into my first off campus apartment was one of the most important experiences I'll ever have, not just at Tufts. Not that RA's counted as supervision, but there was always someone with more authority than me if something went wrong. The first few days in my off campus apartment was a real learning experience of how to live independently.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? Comp 40 was hands down my favorite class. School can be competitive and pit students against each other to see who can do best, but this class was such a grind that it brought the whole class together. I formed lasting friendships and learned that school and work aren't every person for themselves, but a team effort where you can learn a lot, not only from professors but also from those around you.
Why did you pick the major that you did? I picked computer science because I've always liked puzzles and programming can kind of be like building a puzzle and making all of the pieces fit together. It teaches you to think logically, trust yourself, and forces you to really understand what you're working on to be successful.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? The CS department at Tufts didn't just teach me the coolest technologies or fancy vocabulary to allow me to fake my way through life, it taught me how to learn, think critically, and easily pick up whatever new task at hand I might have at work. There are a lot of things I don't know, but studying computer science at Tufts not only humbled me but also left me capable of learning anything I needed to.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? Usually typing at a keyboard for most of the day can make it hard to find meaning. However, thanks to the autonomy I've been given at work, I've been able to make mistakes. When I've made those mistakes I've been able to see the importance my work has for people and how they rely on what I do to live healthier and happier lives, and being able to help provide that is very meaningful.
Name: Dr. Oleg Svet
Class Year Graduated: 2008
Majors at Tufts: International Relations
Current Job: Congressional Staffer, National Security Focus
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? Being Chair of the Director's Leadership Council (DLC) was the most memorable and important experience. As Chair of the DLC I worked to reform the International Relations Curriculum. Working with Professor Malik Mufti and others to reform the IR curriculum so that it reflects what the student body wants was by far the most satisfying experience I had. I'm particularly proud that the reformed curriculum includes an International Security concentration, which I worked on extensively to ensure that it is offered to students, and it's great to see that this concentration has become the most popular one in the IR student body. Knowing that something I worked on a decade ago benefits students to this day is important to me.
Also, while working on the Director’s Leadership Council I was charged with increasing engagement between the IR student body and IR professors. One of the most memorable events was when I hosted an event in 2006 between Professors Jeff Taliaferro and Malik Mufti, to debate a resolution stating that “the ongoing intervention in Iraq is justified on the basis that it will bring democracy to the Middle East.” Cabot Auditorium was completely packed and students were sitting on the stairs and standing alongside the walls of the auditorium because all of the seats were taken. Passions were high and students got to express their opinion of the Iraq War at the height of the conflict. All in all it was an incredibly enjoyable event that got good coverage in the Tufts Daily. In retrospect, hosting a debate between two distinguished scholars on a political resolution foreshadowed my future work in Congress.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? “Terrorism and Counterterrorism.” Given my position on the DLC, I helped to set this class up through hosting meetings between retired Special Forces Brigadier General Russell Howard and the head of the Tufts Political Science Department. After the curriculum got approved the course was offered in the department starting in fall 2006. In a rare instance during the 2007-2008 academic year I served as Teaching Assistant for the course while I was still a B.A. candidate. The experience did several things. Because General Howard shared his experiences working in the field the course crystallized my love for international security as a discipline, in particular counterterrorism. It changed the way I thought about counterterrorism because it moved my understanding of the subject from a very theoretical, Ivory Tower perspective, to a more practical understanding of how counterterrorism missions are carried out in the field. Working alongside retired General Howard also increased my respect for our servicemembers who work every day to make our nation safe from terrorist attacks. Finally, being a teaching assistant forced me to move from simply enjoying reading materials about counterterrorism to digesting international security literature in such a way that I could communicate it to students who would come to my office hours to ask questions about the subject.
Why did you pick the major that you did? Choosing International Relations was a no-brainer for two reasons. The first is that Tufts is one of the five top international relations programs in the United States. The second is that my life history and international living experience left no question in my mind that I want to study international relations. In high-school I was the kid who led a political club, who was reading Foreign Affairs, and who was a member of the local foreign relations organization, in my case the Worcester Committee on Foreign Relations.
How has your major prepared you for the work that you are doing? It has prepared me remarkably well. Today on the Hill I work on defense, homeland security, foreign affairs, intelligence, veterans affairs, counterterrorism, and appropriations related to all of the above. For all of these subjects I need to know the big picture: that is, how the legislation or the appropriation-related initiatives that I’m working on will positively impact our servicemembers abroad, strengthen our security, improve our diplomacy, or push forward on international law. The IR program at Tufts prepared me extremely well for understanding the big picture of all these issues.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? The purpose of Congress is to pass legislation that improves the lives of all Americans. I come to work every day knowing that this is the purpose of my work: to make sure that every day we are working to create a fairer and more just country for all of our citizens. The legislation that I help draft aims to work toward that common goal. Great laws provide a set of incentives and disincentives so that individuals take actions that help both them and society as a whole. No law is perfect, neither the laws that were passed before I came here, nor the legislation that I or my colleagues are currently working to pass in Congress. Over time laws also need to be updated to reflect the changing mores, the introduction of new technologies, and so on. So there is some “job stability” in the industry which I operate. Most importantly, I’m lucky in that I find the work I do meaningful and that I believe the purpose of my work is tied to improving other people’s lives.

Majors at Tufts: Child Development and Psychology
Current Status: PhD Student at Stanford University
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you had at Tufts? The memory that jumps out at me after reading this question is one of the first nights of my sophomore year after I’d just moved into Wren hall. My 9 suitemates and I had just had our mandatory move-in meeting with the RAs. When we got back, I plugged my phone into the speakers in our living room and all ten of us danced together for an hour straight. Exhausted and very sweaty by the end of the hour, I realized how comfortable and loved I felt at Tufts — a feeling I was lucky to carry with me through the rest of my four years.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things or helped you consider applying for a PhD program? One of my favorite classes at Tufts that directly influenced me to apply to my PhD program was Adolescent Development, taught by Professor Tama Leventhal. It was fascinating to learn about the processes of cognitive, biological, and social development that lead teenagers to behave in different ways and influence the adults they become (especially because I was one myself at the time)!
Why did you pick the major/s that you did? I studied Child Development and Psychology simply because I loved (and still love) learning about the way people think and interact with each other and how that changes as we grow up. I wanted to understand how this information could be used to promote positive outcomes and trajectories for youth, especially for those facing adversity in challenging circumstances.
How has your major/s prepared you for the work that you are doing? My majors are directly related to the work I’m doing! My PhD concentration is in Developmental and Psychological Sciences, so the theoretical and statistical training I had at Tufts really prepared me for the work I have had thus far in graduate school and has helped me to have a smooth transition overall.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? The aspect of my work that is most meaningful to me is that the research I am involved in has direct implications for policy and practice. Understanding the different ways to build positive traits and foster positive outcomes in youth is so important to developing youth programs and schools, and ultimately to creating a society of happy and healthy adults.

Major/s at Tufts: Civil Engineering, minor in Engineering Management
Current Status: Double Jumbo, in the M.S. in Innovation and Management program at Tufts!
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? I have been a part of FOCUS for every year that I’ve been at Tufts, and I’ve never felt more energized, supported, and encouraged than when I’m with other people in the FOCUS community. It’s an incredibly fulfilling experience to learn more about and give back to the communities around us in Boston, and as a participant or a staff member you’re welcomed into a diverse, supportive, and intentional community that supports each other even after the program ends. Some of the closest friends I made at Tufts are from FOCUS!
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? On a whim, I took Intro to Community Health with Professor Edith Balbach and it really opened my eyes to how we can use a public health approach to address many pressing issues we face today. I learned to use a systems approach to look at the bigger picture when exploring problems, to determine all the factors that influence a problem and find the root cause of an issue. I’ve tried to apply this perspective to my work in engineering, and it’s been remarkably effective and useful at solving some pretty tricky problems that I’ve come across during my internships!
Why did you pick the major/s that you did? I actually started at Tufts intending to major in International Relations, with the hopes of eventually going into international development. However, I quickly learned that the political science side of IR didn’t really appeal to me, and switched to Civil Engineering halfway through my freshman year to tackle infrastructure development and public health from a different, more hands-on angle.
How has your major/s prepared you for the work that you are doing? The wonderful thing about engineering at Tufts is that students are taught to be more than just technically skilled. My coursework for my major covered ethics, management skills, writing, and public speaking, among other non-technical topics critical for a successful career. Almost every class I took involved working in groups on projects, writing reports, and delivering presentations. All of this has made me a really well-rounded engineer, and has definitely helped me do my work more effectively and solve problems more quickly throughout my internships and in my master’s program.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? I think the most meaningful part of my work in construction has been working on projects that are iconic, environmentally sustainable, and beneficial to many people. I’ve helped manage construction for a major airport and a major hospital, and I’m proud of the fact that my work means a better experience for passengers and patients while having as little impact on the environment as possible.

Major/s at Tufts: International Relations Major, Communications and Media Studies Minor
Current Status: News Partner Services at Facebook
What is one of the most memorable or important experiences that you have at Tufts? Teaching a Perspectives course through the Ex College. It was a TON of work and took a lot of late nights (and last-minute lesson plans) to accomplish, but it was a fantastic learning experience, and one I would highly recommend.
What was one of your favorite classes that you took at Tufts that changed the way you thought about things? U.S. Foreign Policy Toward Asia, with Michael Beckley. The course didn't necessary change my perspective on the topic, but it was by far the most interesting and informative class I took.
Why did you pick the major/s that you did? My decision to pursue International Relations probably had something to do with having a non-American parent and being encouraged to view American foreign policy from an international perspective at an early age. I've also always been drawn to the powers of journalism and marketing to create broad societal change--hence the CMS minor.
How has your major/s prepared you for the work that you are doing? Much of my work involves an in-depth understanding of online media and the role it plays in global information ecosystems, topics which nicely combine both my major and minor.
What do you find the most meaningful about the work that you are doing? By analyzing large amounts of data across the platform and boiling it down to meaningful, useful stories, I can help publishers reach new audiences and more effectively serve their readers.
