Graduate Study

Graduate work at Springfield College began in 1899 with the completion of the graduate requirements—one year of “advance work” plus a thesis—cceptable for a diploma. In 1905, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts authorized the College to grant the degrees of master of humanics and master of physical education. In 1926, the College was granted the power to confer the degrees of master of education and master of science. The degree of doctor of physical education was approved by the Board of Collegiate Authority of Massachusetts in April 1950. The master of social work degree was approved in 1993.

While different departments offer and supervise graduate programs at Springfield College, coordination of these is effected through the Office of Graduate Studies. Graduate Studies is, in turn, coordinated through the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs along with the Colleges general regulations, academic policies, and philosophy of education.

Graduate students are urged to familiarize themselves with the Student Handbook and Catalog.
