Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The physical thearpy program at Springfield College is small and the classroom sizes are small, which makes interacting with the professors a good experience. The professors are extremely nice and very willing to help and accomodate as they are aware of the difficulty of the program. The professors have a wide range of interests and are very willing to talk with students to help further their interests in the study of physical therapy. Springfield College provides a wonderful learning environment and their clinical experience opportunties keeps students involved and excited to learn.

Very time consuming with workload and internship hours. Expensive with not too many financial aid opportunities however the education is worth it.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Our program is very hands on. I have done a lot of fieldwork and site visits to help support what I learn in the classroom and boost my knowledge. I will be more prepared to enter the occupational therapy field.

The graduate program is average but the surrounding areas and the city the school is located in is unsafe.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel there are many pros to the graduate program I have chose to be a part of. First, the professors are extremely knowledgeable about what they teach. They are also willing to give extra help if a student needs it. The support I get from peers and faculty in this graduate program is very helpful. The graduate program I attend is very convenient. Classes are every other Saturday and Sunday. This allows me to work full time and be there for my kids when they need me. A con to this graduate program is that it is very expensive. I have taken out student loans and still I have a balance to pay off. This is very hard for someone such as myself, who works full time at a non-profit agency, has a family I need to help support and is only trying to better myself so that we no longer have to struggle to provide the necessities.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel like my program director is very supportive and helpful. The classes are very expensive per credit more so than other programs in the area. I wasn't offered very much financial aid either.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Faculty and staff are highly supportive and focus on helping students grow spiritually, mentally, and professionally. Convenient access to wellness center for physical fitness. Coursework is rigorous yet rewarding. Location makes it easily accessible for persons without out a personal vehicle and persons with a broken vehicle. :) Cons: The career center is minimally accessible to employed, weekend students. Grants and scholarships are not accessible, despite high academic and social merit.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The people at Springfield College make this university wonderful. The school is small enough that the faculty develop personal relationships with the students and truly care about their professional and personal growth.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty is very accessible. Whenever you need them, they are there to help. The classes for the program are usually held in the afternoon in order to accommodate the schedules of working adults which is very nice. Overall the program is great and I encourage anyone who is thinking about pursuing a career in Rehabilitation Counseling to consider Springfield College!
