M.S. in Human Resources Management

Attracting the most qualified employees is important for the success of any organization. Human resources, training, and labor relations managers and specialists play a pivotal role in getting great employees and helping them enhance their skills and maintain their job satisfaction. Today's human resources workers juggle tasks such as handling benefits, recruiting, interviewing and hiring new personnel and, increasingly, consult top executives regarding strategic planning. They have moved from behind-the-scenes staff work to leading the company in suggesting and changing policies. Senior management is recognizing the importance of the human resources department to their bottom line.

The M.S. in Human Resources Management program provides students with the necessary foundations and the advanced skills of a career in this growing field. Our program is suitable for individuals in various careers who want to pursue a managerial position in the area of human resources. Career opportunities include positions such as HR Generalists, Benefits Administrators, Recruiters, and Training Managers, among others.

Through a curriculum grounded in theory and research, students are exposed to the principles and concepts of HRM and acquire valuable expertise in applying these advanced techniques. The degree requires 36 credits, 15 in core courses, 6 in advanced core courses, and 12 in electives plus the 3-credit Capstone seminar. The program is designed for the working adult who wishes to pursue a graduate degree part-time by taking evening and some weekend courses. It is normally expected that students will take 6 credits in the fall, 6 credits in the spring and 3 credits in the summer. The program normally takes 30 months to complete.
