Upon the recommendation of the Department Chair, school dean, and certified by the Office of Academic Affairs , the College authorizes the awarding of the master’s degree to a student who has completed an approved program of studies with a B average or better (3.000).
At the start of the final term during which a student expects to complete requirements for the degree, he or she is required to file an application for degree in the Office of the Registrar.
The College grants the following master’s degrees: master of business administration (MBA), master of education (M.Ed.), master of science (M.S.), master of physical education (M.P.E.), and master of social work (M.S.W). Students in all major fields completing graduate requirements are eligible for the master of science or the master of education degree.
Students in physical education may elect the master of physical education degree if they so desire. Students in the social work program receive the master of social work degree.
The development of research skills and knowledge and engagement in research activities are an important component of the graduate experience at Springfield College.
A student pursuing a master’s degree must successfully complete Foundations and Methods of Research (RSCH 610) or its equivalent and a program-specific research endeavor that demonstrates the students understanding of the research process.
