The Human Resources Management program gives you the foundation needed for a successful career by providing the skills necessary for you to align human resource practices to any professional organization. The courses within the program are results-oriented and practical, with real-world examples and exercises. Human resources management topics covered in the program include employee recruitment and selection, total rewards, conflict resolution in the workplace, employment law, and more.
Students may also register for classes individually rather than the full program.
If you would like to supplement your human resources knowledge with deeper diver into employment law, we recommend that you concurrently enroll in the Employment Law Microcredential, a 3-class program that you can complete this semester. If you choose to concurrently enroll, register for all classes in the Human Resources Program except for PROED 304: Employment Law, as that class is also part of the Employment Law Microcredential and will count towards your HR program requirements.
