The College of Special Studies has been the administrative home for academic programs that serve populations outside the traditional undergraduate and graduate communities. This includes a continuing education division, study abroad programs, and specialized training schools affiliated with the university. From the 1940s to the 1960s (as the Division of Univrsity Extension and the Division of Special Studies), students of the predominantly female affiliates were taught by Tufts faculty but were never fully integrated into the college's social life. After the demise of the affiliates program, the CSS now administers the liaison with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and various graduate continuing education programs.
