Springfield College


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.

Known worldwide as the Birthplace of Basketball ®, Springfield College is internationally renowned for innovation that has improved people's lives since 1885. Stellar visionaries from the College have made indelible marks on society, science, and health and wellness, including James Naismith's invention of basketball in 1891. From groundbreaking studies in exercise physiology to today's research in the new Center for Wellness Education and Research, Springfield College continues to transform lives and communities.

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 2012 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 150,000 hours of community service to schools and organizations in the city of Springfield.

Springfield College's campus offers an outstanding learning and living environment for students. Located in picturesque New England on 182 acres in the Pioneer Valley and situated on the shores of Lake Massasoit, Springfield College offers a vibrant campus culture that promotes a wide variety of activities and events for nearly every interest.

New facilities include a state-of-the-art Wellness and Recreation Complex, which received the 2009 Outstanding Sports Facilities Award from the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association. The College's new Richard B. Flynn Campus Union, opened in 2010, serves as the hub of campus life. These new facilities, and renovations to existing facilities, enrich the College's academic programs and create a superior campus experience for students.

Classroom instruction, internships, and a wide range of volunteer programs provide students with the skills they need to succeed—and lead—in their careers and in their communities. The College's more than 47,608 alumni work in 60 nations. Wherever they work or reside, they become vital links in a human chain that makes a difference in the quality of people's lives and leads to impressive achievements.
