Graduate education isn’t about watching the world pass by—it’s about actively engaging in it. At Springfield College, master’s and doctoral programs introduce you first-hand to community action projects and clinical, research, and practical placements. As your graduate-level learning expands and evolves, you will find that like those who came before you, you are equipped to impact your profession, and ultimately the world.
Through the graduate programs at Springfield College, you’ll find ways to become more engaged with your career. You’ll learn how you can embody the Humanics philosophy of educating the whole person in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others, just like the graduates before you. Our integrated approach to education will prepare you to be successful in your professional life.
Our story isn’t just something we tell people. It’s something we show them. It’s something we live.
Since 1885, Springfield College has undergone name changes, renovations, construction, and other major developments. One thing that has remained the same has been our focus on Humanics. You may be asking, “what is that?” We’re always happy to share. Humanics is our unique philosophy that calls for the education of students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others. That means that we focus on helping students grow the whole person so they can serve as leaders in their communities, organizations, companies, or wherever their next steps take them.
Springfield College students provide more than 120,000 hours of community service annually. This is done through academic opportunities, such as our on-campus stroke therapy clinic for community members; clubs and organizations, which includes Habitat for Humanity and the Springfield College Outreach Committee; athletics, including Men’s Basketball Coach Charlie Brock’s reading program for students in Springfield Public Schools; and our Office of Student Volunteer Programs, which helps students locate and organize community service activities.
Springfield College is located in picturesque New England and is situated on the shores of Lake Massasoit. Centrally located to a variety of attractions, restaurants, and entertainment venues, there’s always something to do. Across the lake is East Campus, which is 82 acres of forest ecosystem in the center of the city. With ropes courses, canoes, kayaks, and an outdoor fire pit with seating for 200, East Campus serves as an excellent experiential learning and teambuilding resource. Our reach doesn’t stop in Springfield. Our School of Professional and Continuing Studies also has regional campuses across the country.
A Springfield College T-shirt at the airport or a Luther Gulick triangle bumper sticker on your car are bound to attract Springfield College alumni who have the same amount of passion for the College as when they were students. Our alumni stay in touch, even if they’re living in a different time zone. The Office of Alumni Relations and Career Center host networking events where students can meet alumni, make connections, and get leads for jobs and internships.
