It all starts with Humanics

Promoting an education grounded in the Humanics philosophy of educating students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others, Springfield College provides students with a well-rounded college experience that sets them up for success.

With more than 40 undergraduate programs, first-rate facilities, and 100 acres of picturesque New England campus, Springfield College is set apart by its reputation for educating tomorrow’s leaders in some of the most vital, stimulating career fields and its commitment to real-world service.

Graduates enter the workforce or advanced education with a competitive advantage thanks to top-quality academic preparation and experience in their fields. As early as their first year on campus, students put classroom learning to practice through fieldwork and service learning. This experience helps catapult graduates on to great things, with 97% of recent Springfield College graduates finding employment or enrolling in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Springfield College also promotes volunteerism, with its students contributing a combined 120,000 hours to community service annually, which provides vital support to and enhances quality of life for community members. The College received the 2016 Presidential Award in the Education category of the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for commitment to volunteering, service learning, and civic engagement.

Academics
The world is your campus at Springfield College. Though located in Springfield, Massachusetts, the College has a rich history of its students participating in learning experiences and study abroad opportunities across the globe. On campus, students work closely with faculty members who are experts in their fields and always willing to provide one-on-one service to help students achieve their academic goals. Students in our health care majors get experience early and often, from research to hands-on training, leaving them prepared for advanced education or careers in health-related fields after graduation.

The campus
In addition to ensuring students gain practical experience, the College offers all students the academic resources needed to succeed. The new Learning Commons, which opened in fall 2017, provides students with a hub for all their academic needs, from Library Services to the Academic Success Center.

Students in our health care majors have abundant on-campus resources that allow them to gain practical knowledge. The medical simulation lab provides adult and baby simulator manikins that perform cardiac and other critical functions while exhibiting vital signs, so students get a feel for what it’s like to work with patients early on.

The human performance lab and biochemistry lab provide students with the opportunity to get hands-on experience through a variety of resources, tools, and equipment that they’ll utilize to conduct research on all aspects of wellness and performance. The Athletic Training facility allows students to jump head first into life as an athletic trainer, learning critical skills that will prepare them for their careers in the field. Springfield College also has a community stroke therapy group on campus, providing Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy students the ability to give back to their community and further perfect their skills with clients.

Our 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.
