The Master of Human Resources program is designed to train individuals for careers as human resource professionals. Because of the increasingly complex and sophisticated nature of the profession, both business foundation courses and a high degree of specialization in the human resource area are needed in order to meet the needs of employers.
The M.H.R. program ensures students achieve the necessary specialized training through 27 hours of required coursework in human resource management, and a six semester-hour internship or practicum experience related to human resources. The M.H.R. program also ensures that students have the necessary exposure to business foundation areas through 12 semester hours selected from coursework in accounting, economics, finance, management science, and marketing.
Students are required to complete 27 hours of HR core courses listed below. Selected courses may be substituted with special topics coursework (MGMT 590) based on approval of the Program Academic Director.
Students are required to complete 12 hours of business foundation coursework. In order to ensure that students receive appropriate exposure to analytical and quantitative coursework, the 12 hours of coursework must be approved by the Academic Coordinator. Potential business foundation courses are the following:
Students are required to complete MGMT 727, a six hour internship or practicum in the human resource field.
There are two changes to this program.
First, we are allowing students to apply independent studies coursework to their major requirement. This is to enable students in the accelerated graduate studies to take independent study (New Course Proposal MGMT 590) that will apply to both the graduate and undergraduate degree. The second change is the addition of MGMT 750 to the business coursework. This is a new course designed to focus on financial analysis topics that are specifically pertinent to the HR professional. See New Course Proposal for MGMT 750.
Minor changes - added 1 new course & ind. study to count for core curriculum. No BOT, CHE or SACs.
