For more than a century, Springfield College has been a leader in providing a broad and balanced educational experience. Humanics, the philosophy that has inspired Springfield College from its beginning, calls for educating the whole person—spirit, mind, and body—for leadership in service to others.
A broad range of educational opportunities, both undergraduate and graduate, are offered at the main campus in Springfield, Mass., and at its School of Human Services campuses around the country. Doctoral programs are offered in physical education, physical therapy, and psychology.
With its foundation of academic excellence and rich athletic heritage, the College prepares students with real-world leadership skills for tomorrow's careers, including those in the health sciences, human and social services, sport management and movement studies, business, education, and the arts and sciences. Its low student-to-faculty ratio and experiential learning opportunities provide students with the skills they need to become leaders in a wide range of human-helping professions.
Springfield College graduates work in Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, public and private schools, hospitals, and health-care organizations. They are teachers and coaches, entrepreneurs, health care providers, YMCA leaders, and even gold-medal-winning Olympians.
Springfield College is again ranked in the top tier in its category in U.S.News & World Report's 2015 edition of “Best Colleges,” by U.S.News Media Group. In addition, the College is designated as a premier leadership development center by the YMCA of the USA.
Recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and named to the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its exemplary community service programs, Springfield College students annually dedicate more than 120,000 hours of community service to schools and organizations in the city of Springfield.
