When it comes to having a meaningful college experience, it’s not just about the hours spent behind a desk; it’s about everything that happens outside the classroom, too. As a student personnel professional, you’ll assist in shaping a student’s experience by helping to ensure that their college career flourishes beyond academics.

The student personnel administration in higher education graduate concentration can help equip you to do just that. Between coursework, fieldwork, assistantships, and fellowships, you’ll gain an extensive background of knowledge and skills in student development, psychology, and student affairs work, which will prepare you to work with diverse college populations.

Our curriculum focuses on college-age adult development, student personnel administration, organizational behavior, higher education, and counseling. It will provide you with an overall understanding of the organizations and trends in student personnel work; expose you to the service areas within the field; and train you in counseling, organization and group work, consultation, research, teaching, supervision, and administration.

I was attracted to the student personnel administration program in the psychology department at Springfield College because of its great reputation in the field of higher education. The faculty here are fantastic and the program is based upon counseling, group discussions, and field experience. Throughout your graduate experience you will gain not only classroom knowledge but also hands-on learning experiences that will help you to succeed in the workforce and in building relationships with others in the field.
