It all starts with Humanics

Founded in 1885, Springfield College is known worldwide for the guiding principles of our Humanics philosophy—educating students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others. That means we focus on helping students grow as a whole person so they can serve as leaders in their communities, organizations, and companies—or wherever else their next steps take them.

New academic programs, renovations, construction, and other major developments have ensured that we remain relevant for today’s students and society. Our right-sized private college encourages students to form personal relationships with professors who care about their academic successes and the shared goal of improving their communities. Our programs include opportunities for real-world experiences through dedicated internships, fieldwork, and practicum requirements. According to our most recent postgraduate survey, 99% of students found successful careers or attended graduate school not long after graduation.

The College offers a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in health sciences, human and social services, sport management, education, business, and the arts and sciences. We also offer doctoral programs in Counseling, Psychology, Physical Education, and Physical Therapy. Learning expands at Springfield College and evolves through hands-on experiential opportunities. Students will find, like those who came before them, that they’re equipped to impact their professions and the world.

Springfield Humanics Philosophy

At Springfield College, we believe a person’s emotional, intellectual, and physical lives are deeply connected. Our Humanics philosophy calls for the education of the whole person—in spirit, mind, and body—for leadership in service to others. We represent this ideology with an equilateral triangle standing on its point—because it’s all about balance. 

But outstanding balance can only be built on an outstanding education, an exceptional student experience, and a robust return on investment, all at a place that feels like home from the moment you step foot there.

Springfield will help you build your community, create your future, and grow into the best version of you.

    • Camille Richards ’14
  • “By living the Humanics philosophy, I can make an impact on a local, national, and global level, from tending a community garden to experiencing new cultures by attending a global YMCA conference halfway across the world. I’m so incredibly lucky to call Springfield College my home.”

    • Kyla Boyns ’21
  • “The fact that we go out into the field so early gives us a basis of knowledge and examples of clinical experiences which provide context for our future learning. Seeing what I’m learning in action is very beneficial.”
