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.
Business Foundation Coursework (12 Hours)
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.

MGMT 801 Human Resources in the Global Firm is changing designations to MGMT 701, in order to conform to the expectations from the Provost’s Office and the Dean’s Office that course numbers for Master classes be in the 700s and course numbers for Doctoral classes be in the 800s. As a result, the MHR bulletin needs to be updated to reflect this course number change.
MGMT 737, HR Experiential Project, is being proposed as a new course. This course is an experiential learning opportunity for the students, and thus should be added as an elective in the program.
MGSC 872 has been submitted as a course number change, which impacts this program. That change is also reflect in this request.
Minor revision. No BOT, CHE, or SACS notification required.
