Graduate AdmissionsSpringfield College actively seeks to enroll men and women of distinguished academic ability who wish to establish or enhance a career of service to others as evidenced by significant and appropriate cocurricular activities.
The College is concerned, and has been since its founding more than 100 years ago, with the development and education of the complete person—the spirit, the mind, and the body—to build character as well as professional competence in individuals so they may better serve the communities of the world.
While different schools and departments offer and supervise graduate programs at Springfield College, the programs are coordinated by the Office of Graduate Studies. A Graduate Council, chaired by the Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs, establishes the policies governing all graduate work at the College. Graduate programs are, in turn, coordinated through the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs, along with the College’s general programs, policies, and philosophy of education.

PROGRAMS OF STUDY
The program of study for each graduate student is developed in consultation with his or her major advisor in accordance with the requirements for a degree or certificate in each major program, with primary consideration of individual needs and professional objectives.
The various programs on the graduate level aim to prepare students to become professionals competent in their fields, liberal in their educational outreach, aware of their “citizenship” in an expanding world, and motivated to serve society. Every effort is made to meet the special needs of each graduate student. Arrangements can be made for a student to take courses in different majors. Encouragement is given to students for independent study and creative effort. Flexibility of requirements is provided when appropriate, and an atmosphere conducive to advanced study, research, and personal growth is created not only in the student’s formal education program but also in the cocurriculum.
Reasonable accommodations are provided for students with disabilities on the basis of need if the disabilities are documented with appropriate evaluations administered by qualified professionals such as psychologists, medical doctors, or agencies specializing in the diagnosis of such disabilities.
