About This Program
Available at the following campuses
Students have the option to complete their bachelor's with or without a concentration. Class sizes are small, and students are expected to actively participate in class discussions and the learning process. Students are graded based on group discussions, writing projects, and oral presentations. Full-time students with associate's degrees often finish the program in 16 to 24 months. However part-time students or those students with fewer transfer or prior learning credits will take longer to complete the degree.
Students transferring in undergraduate credits and earning credits for what they've already learned through work and life experiences can often finish in 16 months. A minimum of 45 credits must be earned through courses taken to earn a degree from Springfield College.
Springfield College offers a trimester program, with terms beginning in the Fall, Spring, and Summer. Students can begin their bachelor's degree programs at the start of any of the three terms.
